    Former Employee - Sales Executive in Stevenage, England

    Pros

    Brilliant, evolving and innovative organisation. At the forefront of producing high end motors across all formats. Great training programs with some very positive and inspiring people.

    Cons

    I cannot say anything negative about the BMW group itself. The only negative I would have is on the sales role itself. Although I did enjoy my time working in car sales, there were moments that required gritting my teeth. If you can put up with all sorts of customers then you are fine.
