I've been in full-cycle sales roles for the past four years. Was offered an SDR position at a company in an industry in unfamiliar with. Base salary is more than I'm currently making in my AE role. SDR team is young, and the time between hire and promotion to AE is about 14 months.
With that said, if you are an AE or above, would you ever take an SDR role again? If so, what would be your qualifiers for taking it?
Edit to add: Is it a resume destroyer if you do take an SDR role after successfully performing as an AE?
