Thanks. Seems exciting, but trying to understand how the day to day for Sales looks like and whether that would be a good fit with what makes me tick.

Spent 5 years at Salesforce. Now 2 years at Google Cloud. What would you like to know?

Has anyone had a challenging time with scheduling an interview call for an AE role with Gartner? The first time, we scheduled for a day/time and confirmed. When that day/time came, they didn’t call so I messaged them to f/u. They apologized since it didn’t make it into their calendar and the spot was taken although I thought that spot was for me & I waited for the calendar invite despite it not being sent. Rescheduling for the 2nd time wasn’t helpful either even with an invite. Seems strange.

I know technically everything a sales team admin does helps lead to sales but not sure how to quantify it so it isn’t dependent on the whims of a manager and whether or not they’re having a bad day.
Any suggestions on milestones or performance measures? KPIs? Want to make sure admins get a slice of the pie they helped make.
