What else besides salary itself have you negotiated for yourself when you received an offer? How did you go about it?
I suspect it’s around Weds that “Hey Team - We made it to Friday” people start getting excited to say that every fucking week.
Hey SCM 🐟: have you found any capability models for warehouse operations that you find useful? I am thinking of CMM models but they don't provide a gold standard to measure against. Thoughts?
Did we ever get the results for that comp survey someone hooked up? (Why can't we search posts 😬😬)
Got an Amazon Tax offer for a mid level position, but unsure if it's worth the switch. Total comp is will be unchanged, and WLB seems to be the same. Main thing going for it is I could probably have a longer career there. Anyone have any advice or insight they could share with me?
Are there any consulting firms in dc that are considered powerhouses when it comes to geopolitical risk advisory and similarly subjects? I’m familiar with Albright Stonebridge, any else?
Who’s doing SXSW this year?
Does anyone here work for the Chief Data Office or GCDO? Currently work in HR but am looking for something that is more tech/data focused.
I’m starting a new role with a tech company in 30 days, leaving my 6 year job behind for something with more growth. It’s for an executive assistant position, any tips or advice I can carry with me to the new role? This position pays really well so I want to make sure I’m on it! Thanks! 🙂 (currently a administrative and HR assistant)
Honest thoughts on best qualifications to go after to break into PE from consulting - should I go after ACA/CFA/CAIA? I feel I’ve only got the patience to do one of these 😂
Corp strat offer, 135 base, 15k bonus. Sm title. … fully remote, limited / no travel. Good offer? Got a mba and 10 yoe
I just got an offer at McKinsey and I was wondering if the base pay is the same across all first year BAs or if there is typically room for negotiation this early in the career. What other questions do I need to be asking?
I’m upset that I’m always behind in the ambitious and lofty goals my managing partner imposes on the case. He wants to try every case we get on the first setting but hasn’t had a full staff in the two years I’ve been here. I’m so tired.
I’m growing a highly technical team from industry and most don’t have consulting experience. What books / tools would you recommend to get them up to speed on consulting, building relationships, etc?
Hello! I would love to hear thoughts on culture at different consulting firms, particularly big-4. As you can see, I am at EY but interested in understanding more about what is the culture like at the other firms. I am at Partner level, just to give some context. Thank you in advance!

How can I get my *micro* manager off my back? I know I haven’t been doing the best work this quarter, but emailing me all damn day isn’t going to help me do better, I do know that.
Hi, I’m looking for a referral in Microsoft. Can anyone please help?
I have 7+ years of experience in sales management, operations management and client management.
I’m thinking about switching to some type of sales job, but I don’t really have a ton of experience. I’d really like to make $250k per year. I think this would be possible in sales, but what type of sales? And where can I live to earn the most money? I live in rural Texas now, but I’m willing to move if I can make more.
I am a sales rep and have worked extremely hard to build a large book of business. Every year upper management seems to find a way to cut commissions and make my hard work, worth less. Is this common? It’s pretty draining to work harder and get paid less year over year even though you’re typically getting more business. I don’t feel valued. Do more for less? Any other great sales companies/ industries that people are happy with and compensated accordingly? Preferably uncapped commissions
I’m looking to get into tech sales. I have over 6 years of sales experience, the majority dealing in the banking industry. Would an account executive be realistic with no previous SAAS sales experience ?
Today I was thinking about different sales experiences I’ve had–both as the buyer & the salesman. What was the best and/or worst sales experience you’ve ever had as a customer?
I recently got a verbal offer to return to as an Account Executive at Indeed after leaving earlier this year for a start up company. I resigned last Friday after getting word that the offer should be in this week, however I received a Docusign with my relocation package outline that I signed off on. I got a call yesterday saying the offer was being retracted due to unforeseen hiring pauses. How/where do these communication breakdowns happen?
I have been with my company 20+ years. This past year they did a sales market restructure - directions from new upper management. The restructure has been less than favorable toward my commission goals. The coming years don’t look promising. There are sales people making $$$ only here 1-2 years because they were given all my opportunities. It is hard to leave this company - it has been great until now with the changes. I have a very strong job offer elsewhere - but worried about non compete.
Hello I am looking into tech sales and would like to start to looking into SDR roles, what is the base salary expectation ? and Does anybody know who's hiring with great trainings? Much appreciated!
Interviewing for an Enterprise AE role at Boomi. I am hoping to get some thoughts on how they are looking against the competition. As well as any other thoughts on working there.
I was very successful as an internaional sales exec at a startup for 15 years before we were bought by a large publicly traded company. The culture shift was dramatic, as was the way that I was expected to work. I was laid off a tortuous 3 years after the buyout.
While I was in some ways relieved (put me out of my misery!) I spiralled pretty hard and after a while started working PT jobs, gig type stuff, etc. while I figured things out, and healed from burnout.
What would you say a reasonable amount of dials during cold calling/following up should be during an 8 hour day? Do you cold call, follow up, close the sale, and provide customer service to your clients? If so, what would you say a reasonable amount of calls and/or time on the phone should be?
I am trying to get a feel on what others do. I want to change the way my team does things and want to get ideas.
Do any managers do more than just manage and lead the team?
Currently I manage the team, manage accounting, handle HR, handle marketing such as documents and emails, provide all of the technical support, and sell.
My boss still works from home and only looks at the phone report to check the productivity. They refuse to look at my reports or complete activity logs. Because I have 4 hours of no phone activity daily, my boss believes I am not working hard enough.
I have a interview with a digital marketing company called revlocal, they had mention of base salary plus commission. Reading the indeed and Glassdoor reviews from the company are mixed on this topic. Is there anyone currently working at RevLocal as a sales rep that could provide some insight?
My husband does not have a degree but immense sales experience. He has been in sales in the food and beverage industry for about 10 years now and wants to get into tech. I am in tech and have a degree so unsure if he needs a degree to get a sales role? So many places are quick to turn away great candidates because of schooling even if their experience surely qualifies them. Anyone have experience or know if their company requires a BA for sales roles?
What's the dirtiest sales tactic you've ever personally seen carried out? Upper management at my company are encouraging some really scummy practices, and I'm wondering if that's more of the industry norm than I thought.
Im a BDR at a large medtech vendor that expanded into SaaS complimenting our existing smart devices at hospitals. Sales cycles are long in this industry (min 12mo), but seems our value-add platform is so new to market that it’s taking longer (16-24+mo). I’ve been here for over 6mo and support 3 AE’s with zero pipeline and wins, despite meeting my own metrics to get meetings. Is this complex environment usual for enterprise software sales? Not sure if I’m hurting my new sales career by staying.
