"Business Development is about finding a joint win-win for the company, for the customer, and for the partner. I love interacting with CIOs, CEOs, and other influencers who can see value and know how to leverage value in the marketplace. I always seek the 1+1=3 equation in all areas. I love eliminating hurdles and roadblocks, working across technology, development, sales and marketing groups. The best thing about business development is you never have a dull moment and are constantly learning."

Business Development Manager at Accuity
in Skokie, IL

"It was in some ways very fulfilling, and in other ways, frustrating. The job involved too much time spent in Saleforce.com, which is slow. I was used to working in web development, where you have much more control of what you're doing. On the other hand, I liked working on business processesunderstanding them, defining them, and improving them."

"The interaction with people, putting together presentations and my ability to get and do business where no one else could because of my contacts and relationships.What I did not like was the constant airline travel which exceeded (75%) at times. I have traveled my entire career and I don't mind it but this position the travel requirements were excessive."
