What does your company’s performance management cycle look like? Do you do quarterly reviews? Decouple compensation from feedback? What does the calendar look like?
Seeing a lot of posts about SDRs and concern over CTR and response rate. After a while you need to think about changing the medium, not the messaging.
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.

HELP: I have been a TA for 5 yrs, and prior my role was HR/recruiter.I have tried to get out of TA and move into HR but I am having a difficult time. I have applied to entry level HR roles, simply to “start” fresh, and have not seen any luck for 2yrs.It’s not that I don’t like TA, but my company has no growth option and I am stuck at a dead end, unless a magical spell is casted. I have also applied to other TA roles as well, in hope to get industry experience. How can I better market myself?

What's your organization's stance on surveys? I've been in the HR department of my organization for a year and a half, we've never sent any type of engagement, satisfaction, NPS, etc. survey to employees. I've just been made aware that our Executive team and our CEO are not a fan of employee surveys so that's why we don't do them. Is this...normal? Or is it dysfunctional as an HR department to not be doing surveys?

I’m currently a 4th year Private Equity/M&A lawyer applying for jobs in-house. I’ve been asked by a potential employer to provide a “contract I’ve drafted” with confidential information redacted but it seems wrong to pull a contract from my firm and the client to send to another organization for personal use (as purchase agreements are a labor of love from multiple parties). Has anyone else been asked to provide contracts to potential employers? Are there alternatives?

Kudos to the OP who shared her life story (about being pregnant and deciding to keep the baby despite the initial backlash from the father) and continuing to update us. Initially I didn’t get the dilemma, now I do. It makes me feel I’m a part of your life in some small way. Maybe it’s sad, but I really needed that during these difficult times. The support in this group is phenomenal.

I’m going give my notice soon. I’d rather not have any conversation about where I’m going, but the expectation on my small team/ with the ECD is to share. How weird is it to try and keep it quiet?
