Hi everyone, I’m an enterprise Account Manager at the moment managing renewals and upsells. For the past couple of months I’ve been considering becoming an Account executive on new biz. Would love to hear from others what your experience has been in these roles and which one you prefer, especially anyone who has done both. I’d like to hear everything, The good, the bad, and ugly, to help me make the best decision.
I’ve been leading sales at my job for the past 5months+ and today a relatively new hire accuses me of stealing their lead commissions. 😭 How about you catch up! The audacity.
Tips for staying sane while self isolating? I live alone and with the office closed + the city shut down I’m realizing how much I depend on work for socializing. Haven’t said a word out loud all day🤦🏻♀️
My boss never holds anyone at the firm accountable except for the associates. All support staff can do whatever they want, be unreliable af, and my boss lets them stay and collect paychecks. Makes my morale sink. That is all.
Billing 5 hours by noon feels so good. Mentally and emotionally in a completely different place than when I have 2-3 by this time.
Alvarez & Marsal Super specific question: Anyone know if Alvarez & Marsal’s background check for SUPPORT ROLES (e.g., internal IT) includes a credit check?
A little paranoid because I had an offer for an internal support role with a bank a few months ago rescinded due to 2 collections accounts from my college days (6 years old, about to fall off my credit report… pls don’t judge me lol).
Anyone at a firm start their own “firm” in the side for tax benefits, taking on small side matters, etc.? If so, can you share some tips for doing so?
Have midlevels / seniors who are curt / impatient with juniors forgotten what it’s like to be a junior? Asking for a friend
Commission plan discussion:
I was promoted to Director of Sales and am tasked with revamping our sales commission plans
We are in a high margin industry, the majority of the team’s sales are transactional, so they are quick closes, and they have a base around 60k
Current plan is: 3, 5, 6, and 8% of revenue depending on different factors
I am thinking of streamlining to make everything 10%. (5% paid upfront when they land the sale, 5% paid once invoiced).
Thoughts? Things to consider?
Not sure if I buy Andrew Yang as a candidate but I did get some laughs from his story about his time at Davis Polk. Still chipping away at my debt but good to be reminded that exits can work out 👩🏻💻
I’m trying to learn more about what it’s like to work at a start up and how I can align my skills and experiences through connections on LinkedIn. Any suggestions on what type of questions to ask?
Does anyone have experience with payfactors? Looking for a salary benchmarking tool that is not crowdsourced.
Hey everyone! Which is more beneficial in the new normal - a Master’s in HR/ Industrial Organizational Psychology, or a SHRM certification? Context: I’ve been in the corporate TA space for 10 years and now looking to level up my career in HR - focus would be on TA and Talent Management . Any advice?
For background checks, I can’t remember - say you had a termination without cause, does this come up in the results?
Can anyone provide advice on how to work with a CEO who will only communicate via email, and their number one pleasure is to gaslight you at every opportunity?
PSA to Partners. Just because it took you 30 minutes to edit a document (motions, discovery, etc.) doesn't mean that's the time it took the Associate to review materials and draft the document. Respect the time and stop asking for ridiculously tight deadlines.
What are your tips/tricks/strategies and tools for long range planning/case management? I have a good handle on daily planning and even weekly goals. But beyond a week gets a bit unwieldy for me. I feel like I go from week to week putting out one fire after another. We do monthly case meetings, but that seems to always focus on the next action items. Do you use a calendar? A list? Some sort of to app? If I walked into your office now and asked for updates on your cases, what would you look at?
Suggestions for OFCCP compliance vendors? I’m specifically interested in alternatives to Direct Employers. Thank you!
My last day at my current firm is tomorrow. Is it weird to leave thank you notes for the partners I felt were great mentors to me? Does it make a difference if I am female and all the partners I work with are males?
Gave notice last week. Thought long & hard about the move, was pumped about the new role (still am)- but now I'm heartbroken and SAD, mostly about leaving the people. Wine is helping. What else? 😢
My doj in accenture is approaching, I recieved a mail to sign and upload some documents, out of those one document says something like this, I'm ok to work in any shift/night shift. Does this mean I will have night shifts? or is this general for everybody to sign and upload?
Uber is getting uber glitchy lately.
My company, Yotpo, is hiring Sales Engineers. I’ve been at the company for awhile and think we have top tier culture, work life balance, and comp. If you have any experience as an SE in SaaS and e-commerce, let’s chat! Even if you don’t, my DMs are open! https://www.yotpo.com/careers/gid-4104666/
Never get comfortable waiting on the phone to ring. Prospect Prospect! Pick up the phone and aim to get leads. Self-discipline is so important in this industry!
🧀👩🏾🍳Question for the baked mac & cheese professionals…now I know we all make it different - but curious to know if anyone uses both milk and heavy creamy OR just heavy cream alone for their custard, and if there is a significant difference?
Also has anyone ever tried adding smoked gouda in your selection of cheeses?…👀
Hello, hope all is well. Would anyone mind critiquing my resume. They say a closed mouth can't be fed, so I'm asking...
Happy Turkey day and thanks in advance.
Is it still worth using relationship status targeting on Facebook? Going to be running a bridal ring ad for ring upgrades so want to only target married or engaged; but I’m not sure if people still really update their relationship status anymore.
Moving from Toronto, Canada to London, UK any recommendations on interesting companies/industries to start right? Thanks!!
What kind of hours could I expect to work in an advisory department (tax, fund formation, IP) in a US firm in London that pays market?
Does anyone know how should one put CPA/ACCA on resume for an experienced professional? Can anyone dm me any examples? Tried googling but didnt find anything appealing
Just gunna say this bowl is insufferable. It’s a disinformation farm for Trump from like 3 users (SC, D, A), and it’s an ever devolving conversation that meets the trolls where they are on the left. To the overlords/mods/community - any way we can fix it?
Just wish this place could have fewer Ben Shapiro, Candace Owens, Joe Biden “corruption”, and “dear leader” memes.
30 m ny/nj. US citizen. Moved as a teenager. INTJ. Single since I figured I’m not fighting the biological clock and have all the time in the world to meet someone and get settled. Things changed after I watched Akshay’s mom (Indian Matchmaking) tell him even 25 is too late and not marrying somehow messes up lives of people around him. While the show was staged, there might be truth to the latter part.
Looking for F in ny/nj. Personality: NOT Aparna. NOT Nadia but def more Nadia than Aparna.🙏
Am I an idiot or is this completely nonsensical? Send help, there is not a single funny paralegal meme
I let my kids FaceTime my mom this morning to wish her a happy bday. Then realized after they hung up her bday is tomorrow. 😂🤦🏻♀️ Better early than late I guess
Ferrari as a boys first name? My last name rhymes with it as well. Crazy or ingenious ? (I got laughed out of the room from my wife so here I am looking for support)
