I work for a SaaS company and this is not uncommon for us. A SaaS/tech solution can be tricky to understand and to sell. Starting as an SDR is a great way to learn the product(s) and how to sell.

As a key account manager why are you going down to an SDR role? I would think with that title you have at least 4 YOE correct? If so, you should be able to at least come in as an SMB rep

Ah I see, well Databricks is in a pretty high tier of SaaS so it makes sense they would try and make you an SDR. I would recommend joining a SaaS company that doesn’t… idk what your OTE is currently but I’m gonna assume it’s not too bad and you’ll be taking quite a step down in pay just to slum it as an SDR. There are plenty of companies in SaaS that just want general sales experiences for their SMBs. Check out Paycom, ADP, couple others in HRIS, other “grind it out” sales orgs. It’ll be tough, but you’ll learn a ton and you won’t have to take that big of a step down!

Infosys was going to setup an interview today as they took availability details for today. After filling the survey form last, I just received a confirmation email that the form has submitted successfully. Till today I haven't got any emails or messages from them with the link of the interview. What should I do? and what's going on? Infosys Infosys
