its fairly good.. depends on your solution and manager of course, but the work life balance is excellent, perks and benefits are some of the better in the industry. As long as you are working on a product that interests you and youre ok not making friends in work (since its all very remote unless you live near an office then its enjoyable. having said that, the pay increases are not good at all.

Thanks so much for replying! I have a few other questions hopefully you can answer them
Do they do annual pay rises? (Some companies don’t, I didn’t get one this year)
What’s the compensations like, OTE Split and how achievable?

Had a final round of interviews for a lateral position last Friday. Unprompted, the senior recruiter let me know yesterday that she is reviewing feedback and will let me know about next steps soon. Should I have an answer by the end of the week? The whole process has been quick up until this point.

Considering switching from consulting to sales engineering/presales.

Getting clients engaged during the sales process, doing demos, and helping get them ramped up via workshops is the highlight of my work for me.

Curious about which level to aim for given that I'm coming in with 15+ YoE.

Also curious about switching away from the technology stack that I've mostly built my expertise around (EPM/CPM) to more broader analytics / SaaS toolsets... How hard is that transition?
