I have just been promoted to Product Manager from my APM program at a bank.

I am also interested in chatting about skills to build to jump.

I just found out that the most senior SEO specialist at my company ( technically SEO Manager title ) is making barely 6 figures. Am I crazy or is that unbelievably low? He’s a good friend of mine, and I always took his ranting on being underpaid as him just complaining, but I recently saw the company comp ladder for his position and he’s maxed out at 109k TC.


Has anyone here made a successful exit from their current role during these times? What resources did you use?

My current company just completed an acquisition. At first it seemed fine, but now they're referring to it as an acquisition/merger - should I be worried about my job as I'm part of the foundational sales team? The other company is mostly sales and marketing. If this is really a merger, I'm not sure what to expect...

Anyone know of any part time work from home opportunities? I have experience in the past as an SDR for an insurance firm.

New to software sales. Trying to understand how common it is for sales leadership to accept quotas that are completely unrealistic to achieve? I’m talking the total addressable market isn’t even as large as these quotas. Also how common is it for sales teams to hit <80% of quota year over year without any consequences/changes? Thanks in advance.


Aside from the regular 9-5 job, what kind of side hustle can you recommend for extra income?


Current company is scaling fast and reps in higher segments are struggling to hit quota. Is this normal in SaaS?


I’m 21 and been in sales for about 3 years total. I’m on pace to make just under $300,000 this year. Is that around what I should be expecting or should I be speaking with the executives for more?


Best cyber security companies to join in sales?


I had an interviewer show up late to an interview and then apologize and say that he’s handling an emergency situation. So, I’m relatively flexible and I say that I’m totally fine rescheduling and he says he’d rather just do the interview. He didn’t have his camera on, he’s in the car driving and talking to me. At the end he gives me his objections and I counter them and then he gives me “an assignment”. To write him an email marketing the company. These are all red flags right?


A few questions:
1. When a company makes an offer to a remote candidate should they consider the cost of living where the remote candiadate lives?
2. As a BDR with 6 months experience, living in Chicago, with 10+ experience in the working world (former teacher), getting an offer from a small health tech company (20 employees) what can I expect OTE to be?


I’ve had a fair amount of success in a couple of direct sales ventures, but I’ve ultimately never risen to the top because I’m not a great teambuilder. I’m trying to figure out how to pivot my career & make something from the skills I learned there, but I’m not really sure what that would look like because I never saw myself getting into sales in the first place. Where should I go from here? What is the pay structure typically like in entry-level sales jobs?
