Started a new job and first month I did really well. Some of my installs didn’t go in, but them be the runs. I’m at about half of what I did last month now with the remainder of the month left, so I’ll probably be close to what I did last month, but I am starting to feel like I’m being “put on the program” by management and colleagues. I already had my doubts about this place before I signed the offer letter; do I stick it out or run?

Two months in: I just feel like this isn’t normal.


Trust your gut! If it doesn't feel right, it's not

What kind of relationship do you have with your manager? I'd probably start by trying to feel them out to get an idea of where you stand and whether you should start looking at other options.

I think it's still too early to entertain those kind of thoughts. How is your relationship with your manager, your colleagues or anyone else? Can you give like specific scenarios that really made you uncomfortable? It took me 5 months to adjust when I was starting. Then I realized that I just misunderstood everyone. I'm glad I stayed. Give it more time then you assess. I don't want to invalidate your feelings. Just give it a little more time.

Don't worry. That's normal since you've just started. You are still in the adjustment and learning process. You'll eventually ace it.

Hi Fishies,

I’m looking for some advice on the best companies to apply to as an AE/ Account Manager new to the North American market! The majority of the positions that I have previously worked are combined closer and customer service positions, completing end-to-end sales including the hunt, the close and the retention process!

My experience is in the FMCG sector, Real Estate and hospitality. I am interested in positions in the tech industry and would appreciate any referrals to companies.


Was just let go today due to performance. They said it was because I didn't close a sale in 4 months. However for these 4 months I've been grooming multiple focus accounts that are pretty much a slam dunk at this point. I have multiple quotes on my Directors desk to review before I can present to a customer (worth $500K). These quotes have been sitting there for almost two weeks but the performance issue is on my end?

What would you all have done differently?
