Thoughts on going to a sales role in Tech? Salesforce, Google, etc. Seems like the sweet spot of money and life balance

Easy. Always be closing.

Well, do you like sales? I personally would despise that role but I’m sure it would be a great learning experience

Sales in general (including tech): Tons of pressure, terrible wlb, your consulting skills and background will be largely wasted, low prestige, potential to make very little money and get fired within 3-6 months if you can't perform to what might be impossible expectations. But yes, you can make a lot of money if you perform well, learn it, and put in the time.

Unless you have selling experience you’re going to start pretty low down on the ladder. But eventually you can make absolute bank for a reasonable amount of hours worked. Plus companies like SF and G are wonderful

Was recently looking at sales engineering roles at Google Cloud. Basically pre-sales tech consulting. You can make decent money for sure. Amazon has similar roles as well (they call them solution architects). Both require tech background and cloud experience

Hello, first post here. Outside sales, merchant services/card processing. I’m primarily a welder but I work 4 10-hour shifts typically then I try sales the last three days.

But it seems like a lot of businesses see this as a waste of time, even adding services and cutting costs. I guess either I’m looking for advice or considering not doing this anymore.
