Interested to move to sales engineering, had done Salesforce consulting and hands on implementation for the past 8 years. Also been pulled into proposals and client orals... the intensity of the latter is high, just because it’s time sensitive. Is it the same in Salesforce as an SE? what’s the counterpart of a Manager in the SE levels?

I can’t speak for Salesforce specifically, but generally you’re either an individual contributor that’s customer facing or in management and typically not as customer facing. There are promotion paths for both paths, it just depends on whether you want to manage a team or work more complex/strategic deals

Some companies will have principal architect or field CTO roles that SEs can move up to.

SM on my project stepped away on paternity leave. SM was the one who led partner discussions and most of the client meetings. We're a week from a client deadline. As a manager, I'm stepping but incredibly stress with the amount of moving parts. I don't have a strong rapport with the partner (Neither did the SM) to be open and transparent on how stressful I'm feeling without downgrading myself. I'm sick to the stomach and very anxious, stressed at the suddenness of the thrust. Help!

Throwing this out there - I've transitioned into being a client running IMO/SMO and it's 1000x better. You kickstart the value creation initiatives mapped out with corp dev and do the cool initial brainstorming, then hand it off when execution gets heavy, work very closely with BU GMs to plan product integration roadmaps and commercial integration, work with G+A leads on Day 1/2 op models, then fling all the garbage work, PMO, status reporting to consultants. 10/10 recommended becoming a client.

Seeking some guidance. If you have a client who has told you your firm is going to lose a contract, but they really like you and want to keep you on by telling the new firm they are bringing in to hire you so you can continue on with your work on the account, do you flag for your manager? Especially if you have no interest in leaving your firm. Also, your firm has already had it alluded to them by the client they will be losing the contract. Clearly, a very awkward situation.

Any interview tips for Project Manager roles in software development? I was moved to this role about 2 years ago and soon looking to jump to another company, but unsure of what to focus on talking about. I’ve tested the waters and the feedback from one interviewer who was generous enough to provide it was that I made myself sound like a technologist rather than a PM because I was too focused on the product and it’s details instead of the project management details.

Can someone explain EY independence?

Also, what are immediate family members defined as? And since trading stocks seems not feasible, can you at least trade crypto?

Called into the principal's office to discuss a parent's concern and was blindsided with accusations against me. I was "guilty", despite the fact I had previously documented and proven that this student twisted truths. I was not allowed to defend myself. Then I was told I was not a good fit for the school. I have been there for 13 yrs, 3 with this principal. Suddenly, I am accused of lacking empathy and told the students needed to be "protected" from me. I don't know what just happened.
