Technical Account Manager

Being a woman in tech, I only recently started advocating for myself at work about advancement opportunities. Because of this I wanted to ask this question to my male counterparts. When you have 1:1's with your direct reports and talk about career growth / aspirations what is your managers’ response typically? I’d like to gauge how my experience (negative) differs from others. For instance are you met with blockades, enthusiasm, dread, etc?

    Inside Account Executive - SMB

    Jun 28, 2018 - Inside Account Executive in Somerset, NJ
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Excellent training provided to prepare you for sales on the floor. -Sales enablement team really does prioritize teaching you about the solution practices and resources they offer to help you talk to customers. - Constantly adapting, which is important for the growing tech industry - Culture, the people, and the young environment are great for new grads or people who have never experienced it Lots of room for growth - free vendor lunches and gym - uncapped commission

    Cons

    -Low salary - additional PTO only awarded to people who have been in he company longer - Building a book of business is challenging. Many people end up calling the same 50-100 accounts hoping for a sale. - It can take several years to build the relationships you need with customers to have a regular buyer. - Communicating with distributors and getting quotes out in a timely manor can be challenging with varying response times. - You can pref what territory/time zone you want in training, but will ultimately end up wherever they decide they need you. - Managers in SMB rarely have actual experience managing people - Commission structure regularly changing - Pressure to compete constantly array - CRM is difficult to use and filled with outdated information from companies that have been in the system for years - Can take a while to make your first sale. There are a lot of factors that are out of your control. Some of the most dedicated reps I know still took months to get their first customer - Work Life Balance was challenging

    Thank you for the feedback, both positive and negative. We believe that a sales compensation structure that favors the uncapped variable component incentivizes sellers to deliver the best service to customers. Earning the business can take time and certainly does vary for everyone, but that is common in any professional B2B sales career. We are also adding training content to help leadership to develop their skills and actively updating seller’s tools like our CRM to the most modern standards available. We will continue to take this feedback and work to improve as our organization grows!
