Gartner I’m currently interviewing for an AE (conferences) position and was curious to hear from some people within on how many people hit their quota, how attainable it is to blow it out and just some inside info on what day to day is like in a position like this. Also coming from someone with no outside sales face to face experience I was curious what it’s like making that transition.

It is very hard to generalize. Depends on the industry, territory if applicable, and the quota of course. However, if you are working for reasonable people, it shouldn't be impossible to reach quota, but will likely still be challenging.

I don't believe conferences AEs do live travel for sales. More of an inside sales position. I'm an AE but not for conferences, although I work with them. Some who crack the code do really well. Consistency and reps.

What does the salary/commission structure look like?
Currently looking at an account management role.

Everyone has heard the excuse “I’m underperforming because my territory sucks”. What if you can prove that you are objectively being screwed by the territory you inherited? There’s only so much “find a way” you can manage in barren land and it’s quite tiresome to see your peers succeed off of less than half the effort. The conversation with management has been had and, while empathetic to a degree, no solution has been offered.
