I have a manager who I respect a TON. Great guy, most knowledgeable sales rep I know, and has crazy connections in pretty much every industry.
I currently am way underpaid, have no room for growth, and our company lost our two top sales reps to a competitor. They raked in most of the company's revenue for over 10 years.
I am currently onboarding the second SQR on the team, so want to get that done before making a move, but I have been looking elsewhere for a bit and in some pretty late stages with interviews. Should I give my manager a heads up in any way that I am looking to leave? I've spoken with trusted AEs and they all are super supportive and actually they offered to be references if needed as well.
More context: Been here for 7 months, while I get along very well with everyone, I feel like this is not a good culture fit for me at all. (They are very old-school)
Honestly, I have no idea what to do, any advice would be appreciated!
