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.

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A little paranoid because I had an offer for an internal support role with a bank a few months ago rescinded due to 2 collections accounts from my college days (6 years old, about to fall off my credit report… pls don’t judge me lol).

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?

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?

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.

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.
