Is there a difference between a Technical Architect role & a Solution Architect role? I've seen a lot of overlap with only incremental differences. What should be the difference between the 2?

Technical Architect is a CTA or is pursuing that path. If you don’t know what that is then it’s not for you. Solution Architect bridges the functional and technical roles and is the next step for a very experienced SFDC Senior BA/Admin.

You’ll be much deeper in code, devops, monitoring offshore teams, integration patterns, etc being a TA. SAs provide overarching solution design from a business perspective and usually need a TA to complete their designs

As a solution architect, I design the end to end solution, map integrations, manage data migration approach/strategy, create a release strategy and build everything that can be built declaratively (including simple triggers but not complex ones). I do code reviews though and work closely with developers to ensure custom development accounts for exception and boundary cases and meets the outcomes expected by the client. I've not needed a TA in most of my projects, unless there's significant custom integrations and web development involved. For larger projects requiring a TA, we have often also needed an SA to be able to lead key conversations with stakeholders on design decisions. They are both unique complementary skillsets and should be staffed based on the scope of the project.

Technical architect: he/she manages solution design and build of Salesforce. Solution Architect: Not specific to one system but manages overall solution that may span across multiple systems. For example: if a project involves lead to order conversion. That span across Salesforce, CPQ, ERP systems including master data management systems and middle wares. Each tech architect worries about their own system (such as salesforce, sap etc) while solution architect worries about overall solution end to end. The bigger the project the more difference you find between tech arch and solution arch

I’ve been a sales manager for a little over a year. In that time I’ve worked harder than I ever have before for significantly less pay then I made in sales and now the company is saying they may not pay me my quarterly bonus based on territory performance even after acknowledging that the numbers were un-achievable due to being on hiring freeze and being understaffed. My question is, is this normal for middle management?
