What made you quit your last job?

For me? wasn't moving in the direction I needed to be and got bogged down working a bunch of projects outside of my role.


How about you?

Overhired, slashed territories and started colonoscopy-style pipeline reviews and pressure for not getting more pipeline despite zero inbound and 25% of the accounts.Β Β 

This after asking multiple times to multiple people in the leadership structure what the direction, hiring plans, and plans for my specific territory were.Β 

Oh, and I also was hired under a 'territory' plan and then suddenly told I had a set of named accounts.Β  Tried my best to make it work, but the place got worse each quarter.Β Β

Oof that sounds like a company I've worked for once. Does it always feel like Leadership is clueless to the problems they cause?

I felt stuck. I loved the people, but there was just no way forward for me, and that means I can’t make more money

I was an agency recruiter and got laid off when the vid hit. They would have brought me back at some point, but I wasn't content to sit on unemployment for months and I knew I didn't want to work there for the long term. I consider the lay off a blessing because it forced me to start applying for other roles and led me to the best job I've ever had.Β

Have not quit a sales job yet, but I used to process debit card claims for B.O.A and I didn't even give two weeks notice when I quit because the job was so bad

Shit products, bad micro-management, insulting raises when given massive additional responsibilities/expectations, nepotism.
