Hey everyone! I’ve been an SDR at my current company for 8mo and an opportunity in the AE role came up but my boss (male) said he wanted me to have more experience before promoting me. Offered me a CSM role at the end of Q4 but then I found out he is promoting the other SDR (male) who has 4 months less experience than me and has by no means proved himself. So long story short, I’m pretty upset about the blatant favouritism and looking to move. Anyone have any CSM or AE roles open??

Did you ask him why he is promoting the other SDR over you? 4 months isn’t much of a difference, but you both sound pretty new, so I’m surprised a promotion would be in order anyway.

Im going to ask him today but this isn’t the first time he’s done some shady stuff. Promotion in under a year is pretty normal since we are a small start up.

What’s your performance like compared to your coworker? I was promoted from a BDR to SMB AE after six months only because I was at 150%+ my targets consistently every month. Most BDRs are in seat for 1-2 years

My company is small with a growing sales team so promotion around 8-12 month mark is normal. No one has ever hit quota, not even senior AE bc it’s insanely high but performance is relatively similar with me slightly ahead (not by much) but other SDR has messed up multiple times (ex. Sold feature for $200/month that is only included in $8k deals)

I know it's frustrating, and it may *seem* like favoritism, but you really don't know that. You're both relatively new, and there may be a reason the other person was a better fit. I'd at least ask your boss to explain why your colleague was chosen over you. If the excuse is lame, then move on.

Thank you for your message. I appreciate it! Fully preparing myself to be gaslit when I ask. Esp since he didn’t tell me about the other person being promoted and I had to find out through a team meeting.

Maybe we can wait for his explanation. It his answer doesn't satisfy the question or it doesn't fit, just switch. They don't deserve you and your skills. There might be a brighter future for you in other companies.

Sorry! Just seeing this. What’s the hiring situation now?

Does the other SDR have better numbers?

Not at all. We’re basically always tied.

Hi! I started at a new company 2 months ago and while I’m really enjoying my job so far, I’m having a hard time gauging whether or not I’m doing a “good job.” My role seems to be always evolving, which is fine and I actually enjoy being a support to the greater marketing team, but I feel like I need better defined targets to make sure I’m meeting expectations. Also, when I ask my boss what they’d like to see, I don’t ever get a clear answer. (Cont’d in comments)
