    I have been working at BSI Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Management are super friendly and willing to help. Targets are realistic but as in sales, you will have ups and downs. Management are supportive and want to see people succeed. Nice building and facilities like a canteen with subsidized food

    Cons

    Targets can be to high for some teams which might see them struggle. If you get into a good patch then you can do very well, into a bad patch and it might affect your sales.

    I have been working at BSI Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Job Training to industry knowledge

    Cons

    Toxic Leadership with a culture of bullying. Too much administrative work for sales people. Up to 5 hours weekly in internal meetings and countless hours of micromanaging reports that do not lead to sales. Human Resources shares private information with management. The internal teams do not respect each other so there is very little cross department teamwork. Sales employees tenure is less than 1 year.

    BSI Group Response

    May 2, 2019BSI Rep

    BSI does not tolerate bullying in any form; your comments are therefore seriously considered. Be assured that we investigate accusations of bullying or harassment that are brought forward to our HR team. We are committed to helping our colleagues maintain a positive work-life balance, and we encourage our employees to raise any issues through various channels based on their comfort level. This could be by talking to a member of the Senior Leadership team within your functional area, contacting your functional area’s HR representative, or by following our Whistleblowing process to address this issue in the strictest of confidence. Meanwhile, the Sales profession is difficult and with many competing tasks that distract from revenue generating activities. Time management techniques are critical for today’s sales professional to reach his/her success metrics which includes quota and more importantly customer satisfaction and relationship building. While we know that ineffective leaders can harm the bottom line, the good news is that our business in the US and across the Americas region continues to thrive as evidenced by our Q1 financials and business highlights. Our overall sales are up nearly 11% year over year so our team – from individual sales to leadership – is trending in a great direction. Still, continual improvement is part of who we are, which means we are often implementing changes that can seem like a distraction but we always have our employees’ interests and well-being top of mind. Your input is important to us and this is one of the reasons why we are such a keen supporter of Glassdoor. Thank you for sharing as it allows us to continue to grow as a company.

    I have been working at BSI Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I joined BSI nearly 5 years ago as part of the first Sales Graduate Programme and have never looked back! The business doesn't hold back in rewarding and recognising good / hard work and if you put the work in, its well worth it. The training I was provided with when joining was very good and provided me with a good platform to build on, both in terms of the products / services I was selling and in terms of sales skills training. The programme has changed and developed over the years and it now gives the graduates a greater opportunity to experience the 'One BSI' approach and understand our customers' journey in greater detail - this is something I wish was available to me when I started, but I think it speaks volumes that they have made improvements based on the feedback they received. I have made a decision to stay in sales, and there are many opportunities to develop your career in sales (more so now than when I first joined). There are also options to develop your career in other areas of the business which is great.

    Cons

    We should use the phone more often - it is too easy to get caught up sending emails.
