What's your trying not to pee your pants because you haven't gotten a bathroom break in hours and this prospect won't shut up song? What's your Salesforce is being slow song? Song for when your sales manager asks you what you've got cookin?
I would like to comment and ask have you seen their requirements for the entry level position? Who has business dev. experience for 11 years and is looking for an entry level position? I have friends that work/worked here and they hated it. IMO they aren't going to get people who meet their criteria unless they are paying $300k base for entry level.
While I agree their product is awesome, not sure they have the best SDR team. Also their linkedin presence has completely turned me off from working for them. One of their SDR managers has some dumbass blue hair style and everytime I see a post from him I want to gouge my fucking eyes out.
Also had a few colleagues/friends work there and it's a bit of a boiler room from what a gather. The AEs seem to be fine and enjoy it but they have some really bad turnover.
Seems like a lame answer, but Zoom. Rumors are that they are going to enter into the Cloud Call Center solution space to compete directly with Twilio, Genesys, Five9, Ringcentral, etc. by buying a smaller competitor
Zoom is so easy to beat rn because so many businesses made knee-jerk reactions to go with the one name they knew and have had a poor experience. Not that it's all Zoom's fault (save the security snafu), but I personally wouldn't work for them anytime in the near future. Their competitors mostly had the luxury of watching things play out and fine tuning their own products over the past 12 months- all the benefit with very few of the same hurdles.
Fraud went waaaay up in the past year as more stuff moved online. Ecommerce platforms for the most part don't even bother to address fraud as part of the capabilities. Good leadership helps and they've got it.
I almost worry that with Amazon it's kind of like Salesforce at this point, tons of sales people, small territories, cannibalization etc. Plus they are a pretty flat org through and through so promotions sound few and far b/t. Would definately be alluring later in my career though
Yeah I can see that for sure. What do you think a sales role would be in a company like that? I'm guessing as more financial services pop up that will be where some B2B selling can happen. It's definitely a ripe field for some companies to get some funding and explode.
