You'll have exposure to why a sales engineer works in a project. How can you bring a project to your company and be a part of growth journey. It's like the other end of the boat. Client manager with growth skills is good.

I think it massively depends on responsibilities. It sounds very lateral. But you can play up anything on your resume.

Sounds like career progress to me. If I’m understanding the position correctly a client partner works closely with consumers in a sense of account manager. And sales engineer is in the realm of generating leads and client acquisition. I could be wrong. 

client partner is a good role

The Client Partner role will likely have a more “leveraged” sales bonus structure - eg, if an SE has an OTE that is 75% base salary and 25% sales bonus based on hitting quota, then a Client Partner might have OTE that is 50% base salary and 50% sales bonus based on hitting quota (and maybe even 40% base salary and 60% sales bonus). So the incentive to close deals is much greater for the Client Partner, while the SE has a less “leveraged” comp plan.

Can you share your comp details for us to compare to?
