How do you guys deal with burnout? This job was amazing when I started and the pay is good, but I feel like I’m being ground down a little more every day. I’ve been applying to AE jobs elsewhere but I’m competing with everyone who’s been laid off at this point I’m happy to get a rejection instead of being ghosted by the hiring manager. Any tips on getting out of this mindset? I feel trapped.

I just got fired from job as an Account executive at a company for not performing well enough after 3 months (Even though we are still in middle of pandemic in NYC).I want to get into SaaS sales soon. Does anyone have any advice on what do next? where I can find a good company that will invest in my growth & training? Or jobs for sales people that are flexible and have good work-life balance? Want to weigh my options before I jump in the next opportunity

Both my husband and I have been remote since April 2020.

Newbie here. Sounds like a lot of accountants at B4 firms are unhappy because they feel overworked and underpaid. I would LOVE to know how many hours they are working each year.

I love my team, schedule flexibility, pretty much everything except the notoriety of working for a big four and the extra $ that might come with it.
