Interested to move to sales engineering, had done Salesforce consulting and hands on implementation for the past 8 years. Also been pulled into proposals and client orals... the intensity of the latter is high, just because it’s time sensitive. Is it the same in Salesforce as an SE? what’s the counterpart of a Manager in the SE levels?
A client just told me they were definitely not seriously considering "those McK-wannabes'" response to a new proposal... she was referring to Deloitte. Is this a common perception?
have some bench time coming up as i end this project. what's the best way you all have spent bench time?
What is your client onboarding process? Do you do a welcome kit, with a letter, any gifts?
Is tech sales really worth the hype? I know the earning potential is much higher, but coming from a consulting background is it really hardcore sales “cold calling”, or more client management and building on top of preexisting relationships? I don’t have prior sales experience and trying to gauge the risk. Thanks!

I’m the only person from my firm at the client site and having trouble connecting with people at client (people mostly just see me as an external “intruder”). Not personally bothered, but worried that it hurts perception/client relations. Any advice on how to get more social traction (e.g. get invited to lunch and stuff)?
TFW you volunteer and clean up a laggy 20MB excel file for a client, reducing it to 1.3mb by removing formatting from empty cells, and client refers to it as file ‘you sent’ to shift blame for content
I recently came off a project in which I didn’t perform well and am dealing with daily feelings of insecurity in my current role. Very akin to imposter syndrome- advice for how to be confident again?

I found out today that my employer doesn’t offer any paid parental leave (maternity or paternity). This isn’t a major issue now, but my wife and I are planning on trying in a year or so from now. How many other employers don’t offer any paid leave at all? Coming from public accounting this seemed outrageous to me, but curious to see what other companies are like.
What's with all the Deloitte lay offs? Is that normal there or is it just a bad year? I haven't been hearing about layoffs from anyone else but Deloitte so I'm curious

I only plan on staying in consulting for about 2 more years then off for an MBA. Would it be more worth it to take a level and pay raise at a different big4 moving to senior level rather than going to associate/analyst level at MBB? These are my two choices at the moment. I want to position myself best for post MBA jobs in industry. Salary will def be lower at MBB compared to the senior level at big4 so not sure if it’s worth the trade off in experience.
What are some newish when it comes to negotiating salary? I feel like my go-to has always been dependent on the cost of living of whatever city the office is based in, or moving costs, etc. But now that everything is remote I'm not sure how else to navigate my main negotiating points, especially if the role is a promotion.
