Account Management

How long does it usually take (obviously dependent on how well you’re doing) to jump from AAE to AE? 1-2 years?

There should be no reason for anyone to be an AAE for more than a year unless you're a total disaster in which case you should move to a different role as account may not be the right fit. 1.5 years max. An AAE is a basic entry level to establish potential and learn basic process and team roles. And I say that as someone who was an account coordinator for a year, then an AAE for a year, then an AE etc.. back in the day when they did this to people and took advantage with bs junior level titles

That's another problem for sure. I was lucky in the beginning of my career to report to an amazing female mentor for the first 3 years of my career starting out who made sure when your paperwork approval finally came through, it was backdated and I even got my new salary retroactively. Can't imagine that happening at big networks these days but a big chunk of my early years was at different independent shops with far less red tape.

If you’re doing exceptional, about a year. If you’re on track doing well, about two years. Three years starts to be questionable. There’s not necessarily a time frame, but you have to have the basics down, be on top of your current work and proactively anticipating further work, have proven you’re able to build internal and external relationship, and are generally a nice person who can work with all types of people.

Standard is 1.5 years.

Everyone has different paths. Build your relationships and take on constructive feedback. Unsubscribe from the idea that if you’re not X by this time you’re some type of failure. If you want to jump from one title to another for the sake of a LinkedIn post or to wow someone from your past/present the feeling is short lived. Trust me. When you’re ready you will know.

I don’t get why the entire world is freaking out about Covid19. (1) be cautious, (2) don’t visit elderly relatives, but the way I see it- everyone’s going to come into contact with it- it’s inevitable

One of my biggest takeaways from this whole situation is that the Wall Street Journal is a top, top source of daily news. Content, speed, minimal bias.

Anyone else still have the pinned post about the A wanting to WFH? Super irrelevant now (and tbh I find all pinned posts annoying and wish we could opt out...)?
