Question for Tech / SaaS Sales reps… what are people seeing for pipeline adjustments with current market conditions? Some FANG companies doing layoffs… VC money tightening… are you seeing any difference in your sales pipeline? Still growing? shrinking? pushing?

Churn is killing us right now, I feel like we're all holding on for dear life

Industry?

I blew it out of the water in our Fiscal Q3 Aug-Oct, but I'm barely treading water this FQ.

But EoY is always pretty lean since folks go on vacation, so idk if that's due to the recession.

It has been tough for us all year — as tech sprawl settles into businesses who had to adapt significantly due to COVID/WFH situations, it’s typically the first thing on the balance sheet chopping block in lieu of bleak economic outlook.

Things have definitely slowed down, that's for sure. Not that it's surprising. Fortunately, my company has still fared pretty well, and will hopefully not face any layoffs, but it's definitely a challenging time to be in sales.

Churn is uber-crazy. Gonna miss our company numbers by 33% this year. Major management changes and major layoffs likely.

Cybersecurity.

We're doing OK this month - last quarter was awful - but it will take another nosedive for the holidays.

Industry?

Last quarter was fine but this quarter everything feels harder! Curious to see if it’s the holidays, the state of our economy, or a mix. We will definitely focus more on streamlining and being cost effective for our clients in the new year.

Have you ever dealt with a colleague that believes in extremely (in my opinion) outdated or even just false claims and treats them as scientific facts? I work with several older men but one of them practices "provocative therapy" as in you just play the devil's advocate with your patient and side with the negative half of their thinking. In theory I could see this working situationally, but as a whole philosophy regardless of the patient's issue I think it's ridiculous.

SalesForce folks, a recruiter reached out for an opportunity to interview for a AE position in my specialty. I noticed there is also an opp available locally for a Strategic Account Manager in my vertical as well.
Any one know of pay difference between the two, responsibilities/expectations, how they are viewed in the org itself?
I understand they are different but in my job today, I handle both roles so can go in either direction.
Appreciate any input.

Question for you sales and saas guys. I work for a fast growing startup and we are billing around 200 K a month.
