Yes, Account Executive/Account Manager is a good career goal. I personally think tech is great - interesting products, good culture and pay for the most part...also a lot of salary potential in pharmaceutical sales

Yep. Your best shot would be AE/AM. I suggest you reach out to recruiters around your area to help you with your application.

Had a recruiter from a popular unicorn company reach back out after I interviewed with them earlier this year for a different team. The new team seems to like me and I’m being fast tracked through the process (only 2 interviews instead of 3 and all within a week). The only problem is that if I get an offer, the start date will likely be 11/15. I already have a 2 week vacation planned and I’d be screwing myself out of EOY bonus if I start 12/01. Role is MM, am I too junior to ask for a Jan start?

Curious for all the VP Sales types - what is a healthy average attainment for your team? Ours is hovering around 55% to plan for Q1 and as a rep, I'm feeling discouraged since our comp plan has decelerators built in (ie. 55% to plan only gets you ~25% of your OTE commission).

What are some good ways to get it through to management that raising quotas and carving out territories to add AE headcount (while reducing SDR coverage) may not solve the turnover problem they're starting to have?

Just finished an interview for an AE role at a high-growth SaaS organization.
