Is moving from SaaS sales to selling services after selling SaaS for 7 years a good move? Why or why not?

As someone who sells services, I have seen a lot of SaaS sellers fail when switching over, because it is more about selling yourself as an expert than selling the benefits of your product. Also, depending on what you are currently selling, I don't think the pay tends to be significantly higher. However, it will help you round out your skill set as a seller and open you up to new leadership positions if that is part of your plan.

My local zoo and park system is looking for an Internal Audit Manager. 5 years experience, CPA preferred. Salary range is $60-75k.

Is MBB worth it? I’ve never been in mbb or big 4. Just smaller consulting firms. Have a competing offer between FAANG and MBB. I’m in tech and FAANG is more interesting for my career as well as preferred work culture. However, I’ve seen a lot about MBB here and kind of want to join just so I can say I was in MBB. Is it gonna be killer hours? Promotion politics? Biases on my lack of education? hoping to hear what others have to say


Just had a talk with a senior member about my declining mental health and how to best navigate an exit. Response was “blah blah do these things for your next study” which is fine I guess because he wants to see my career here continue. What bothers me is “there are lots of other people here feeling the same way”. How does help me in any way, we’re getting together in a circle of poor mental health and it’s going to solve everything? McKinsey & Company
