I had the opportunity to work on both sales and business development. They are night and day. The management, guidance and leadership that I received on the sales side was "either you get it or you don't, I can't help you." BDR has the pressure, but you wouldn't know it because management is there to help every step of the way, often offering suggestions and answering any questions that you may have. This is definitely a space that doesn't have much penetration, but once people catch on, it will be a thriving business
relaxed environment, no micromanaging
sales is a revolving door. get managers that know what they are doing and care about the employees.
