My current company just completed an acquisition. At first it seemed fine, but now they're referring to it as an acquisition/merger - should I be worried about my job as I'm part of the foundational sales team? The other company is mostly sales and marketing. If this is really a merger, I'm not sure what to expect...

I would really appreciate some suggestions for roles that I should be applying for. I recently started my MBA though I'm still having trouble landing interviews and think I should be applying for different roles than I have been. My MBA concentration is global business, my BS was in management with a minor in professional writing. I've been working in cosmetics mainly on the customer service side, currently senior support for the CS team and have experience doing CS on social media.

I’m currently 9 months into a CPG sales position but I don’t fancy the industry and want to switch to a more lucrative sales job.

I’ve heard great things about SaaS but I have no experience in SaaS sales and I was an Economics and Advertising double major in college so no correlation to SaaS there.

Any tips to get started switching sales fields? Get certifications? Self study? Just start applying? Thanks everyone

Any SE's here currently at Snowflake? I'm about to start an interview process with them (already had a phone screen with the hiring manager).

I'm a former Oracle SE with experience in data management and analytics and I'm currently at a small SaaS company helping build out the pre-sales function as the second hire (because the first got whisked away to product management after 8 months haha).

Anyone a member of Watch Gang? Wondering how worthwhile it can be. Obviously they aren’t doing it out of the goodness of their hearts - the subscription fees are offsetting the discounts they’re giving. But how good are the discounts? If I were to, say, join and tap out as soon I find a watch I like without being too picky, I think it could be worth it.

Should I do it or politely tell them to pound sand? Small team went way over budget on a thing, i did 90% of the work. Partner is asking me to move some billable time to a non-billable number to “act like a partner” and show I’m willing to share in the hurt. They claim this will help me with partnership later because acting like a partner is one of the most important factors. This would turn an ok june into a bad june for me in terms of hours. I’m up for partnership next year. 👍🏻 or 👎🏻?

My Dad (USMA grad from 70's) is outright "old school" and doesn't equate women to men. As a mom to a daughter and decorated combat vet, this kills me when he makes sexist comments. My sister (legal VP in her co) and I tend to ignore it as it's exhausting to correct every time. But when it comes out, it irritates the crap out of me. My husband, (5 yrs at the 75th) will disagree when my dad thinks he can turn to him for support. What have you seen that gets through to people? just let it go?
