What are jobs and companies that require similar skills like consulting, digital marketing, etc. but have excellent WLB and are more slower paced...? I can’t imagine working my life away for client demands in a fast paced environment for the long term. Also the longer I progress in my role, the more I have to focus on sales and I hate sales so much 😢

Become a Service Delivery Manager

Interesting, never heard of this role. What is their day to day and job function like?

You essentially are an account manager, but you don't have to sell anything. The main focus is making sure your team delivers services as defined per the contract and manage client expectations. If opportunities present themselves then you will be the point person to bring in a sales exec.

My in-laws think any woman or black person in a leadership position is there because of diversity and that companies shouldn’t try to put any effort into promoting diversity in their recruitment because it harms minorities as people will always think those minorities are in a position of power only because they were hired because of gender/race quotas. They also think it’s perfectly justified in prioritizing hiring a woman over a man (all else being equal) because of potential for ‘me too’. 😣

What does Product Management in the Professional Services practice of a large SaaS company do? Sounded like identifying client professional services needs and developing a service offering for that need; but in my experience most professional service offerings are reactionary, i.e. responding to RFPs. This sounds like creating a service and trying to aggressively sell it to clients that aren’t asking for the service.

Not sure if this has been shared on here, but looks like Bonvoy is updating point redemptions to align with cash value of rooms vs seasonal peaks / hotel categories. So for example a Category 8 hotel in peak season is 100k points/night, regardless of nightly rate (let’s say it’s $2,000/night). I’m speculating you’ll see that jump to something like a 1:100 exchange so that the same hotel room in 2022 will be 200k points / night.
