Market leader with a tremendous corporate culture
Business Development Manager (Former Employee), Raleigh, NCJuly 19, 2013
Pros: opportunity for advancement
Cons: not much work-life balance
As a Business Development Manager, I was a part of the sales arm of this organization which has been increasing sales and market share aggressively in the last 5 years.

The management team at HON is second to none. Each manager has something to offer and always has the best interest of their subordinates in mind. It was a great place to be if you are – more... looking to advance within the company and get cross functional training.

As a BDM, the hardest part was balancing my daily selling activities with extracurricular (required) projects. Because of this, most nights I spent working and had little personal life.

I enjoyed the people and the culture otherwise, as well as the ability to work with customers face to face. – less
