Are there companies out there acknowledging and/ or taking action to reflect on what is happening in our country in the aftermath of George Floyd and systemic racism?
Do seasoned enterprise reps actually think that MEDDIC helps the sales process? This is coming from the perspective that champions are undervalued and the economic buyer in a F500 company does not usually speak with vendors. The market here is developer tooling. Curious to hear thoughts as many sales leaders use MEDDIC as an inspection tool to manage sales reps with little practical value for deals.
Anyone here struggling to get new meetings? A thread for posting what services your company offers and maybe we can help make some connections to get into new accounts.
Hello everyone, appreciate the feedback and your thoughts. My company did not allow work from home, so I took fmla for 12 weeks. Upon returning, my roles have changed to chemical regulatory, vendor commissions and some account management. I am worried about my career, should I stick in chemical sales and look for another job or regulatory is lucrative field. I want to stay near technical field. Is it a boon or a punishment?
Hey everyone! I've been in agency technical recruitment for 2.5 years now - Toronto market. I am very interested in being more involved in BD - possibly be in a full cycle recruitment role. My concern is that I've only had inside sales related experience, and I want to make sure I am able to ace the role when I do transition. I would love to get some advice from other recruitment professionals. Thank you in advanced :)

Looking for some advise on making a career move. I've been in software and telecom sales most of my career, starting at a telco (14 yrs) and then a small independent consulting company (4 yrs). Focus as been in cybersecurity and workplace/IT Modernization (Collaboration Platforms, SD-WAN, etc). I'd like to stay in sales leadership role, but I'm currious if the larger players (Microsft, Cisco, Salesforce, or a large consulting player) hire leaders from outside when not coming from a large firm.

Does your company offer an insurance payout to employees who opt out of your insurance plan and if so how much? We do, however we think it’s too low of an offering and would like to increase it. We want it to be logical from a financial standpoint.

Do you think about/picture most of your colleagues in a sexual way, at least a little bit, if they’re relatively attractive? Does this get better as you get more senior (aka you stop doing this)? It’s weird almost like intrusive thoughts. Also weird to me that my managers may be doing the same
