My current goal is to work in audit for a few years and then get a related forensics degree & the CFE then switch over to forensics at my firm. Any thoughts for how long I should be in audit before making the switch? Context: I really enjoy my job so far and am about to move to staff 2.

Hey all, question about a toxic organization. I’ve rided it out in sales as an AE at an org for 2 years and now I truly feel my mental health suffers. We have “forecast sales meetings” where the Director grills us on deals in front of the entire team. There is inconsistent behavior and 0 accountability from leadership when we don’t hit our sales targets.

Is this a normal thing in sales?
