Post

I got MGMT to give me a MAC & this is HOW.

My first post was about how to get one. This is a follow-up, thanks bravado.


I asked for 'a few minutes to meet about my computer'


I quantified my issues.


  • slow bootup- 15 sec. - 1 minute
  • loading of pages - 5 sec - 1 minute
  • Salesloft audio quality (referenced this link: https://support.salesloft.com/hc/en-us/articles/360022470171) which states windows complicated coding that tends to make audio quality terrible if not programmed correctly
  • Took note of ZI disconnecting from my SF instance 2 times
  • Took note of Navigator in SL not functioning properly, not adding to saved leads list
  • compared the computer 2.3 ghz clock speed to my phones 3.1 ghz clock speed
  • compared the computer 250gb space to my phones 500 gb space
  • stated that I would be better suited to chase my accounts on my phone as per this
  • stated that if planning to ramp more SDR's needs to consider this to make his/her life easier
  • stated that 'i want to throw it out the window' & 'i'm dieing, I can't do this, I never had any of these issues at my last job on my mac'
  • stated 'if i'm expected to do great work, use these tools, get meetings I need something better'

Macs are routinely better machines (I worked for Apple for 7 years so I'm biased.) I was once the only person in my company that wasn't an exec to have a Mac. It belonged to a client, so when that program ended, I had to give it back. 


Now I work on a Surface Book 2, and while snazzy, it's still terrible. (As in, it shouldn't take several USB-C docks to figure out how to get 2 monitors to work..plus it only has 1 USB-C port.)

Macs also cost the company less long-term. Same priced Dells and HPs are EOL'd within 2-3 years versus Apple's 3-5 (and in some cases 7) 

Real talk: The only "Compatibility" issues Macs have in the modern workplace sit between the desk and the chair in IT.

I was hired at a really good start up about 4 months ago for a SDR role that I was told I wouldn’t be in for very long. They’re gonna go public in the next year, but Zoom Info reached out to me about an Account exec position. Now I’m wondering if I should take the guaranteed route to AE or let my shares vest and get to AE at the place that took me. Usually I wouldn’t consider jumping so quickly, but AE is AE.
