📱iPhone vs Android for a sales career?

Long-time android user here, have been told my lack of facetime ability and blue text messages might be a negative. Thoughts?

Which country

I'm not sure I understand. Are you referring to sales outreach you are doing via text message?

I use an iphone. Does everything I need it to.

I've been an android user for several years as well. I don't see any significant difference if you use iPhone.

The teammate who mentioned this was talking about subconscious cues, including things that signal elegance i.e. airpods hahah

Sounds like your teammate might be superficially compensating for a lack of genuine skill

It’s this terrible feeling of like anguish/unease in my gut, but I don’t have anything I’m worried about- it’s like my body wants to find something to worry about.

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 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.

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
