Canada. There's nothing wrong with staying as an SDR. Not everyone wants to be an AE. It's fun and challenging to open a new business

This is true, especially the talented and well compensated ones. Maybe it’s the assumption that one is an entry level role and couldn’t be considered advanced.

I applaud your decision to enjoy your SDR role, especially if you are compensated fairly and your leadership knows your worth. 

My SDRs are paid a great competitive base and bonus structure because we only focus on winning and expanding the largest global brands. 

There is much more to being a SDR than phone calls and emails.  

I know most companies use it as a stepping stone, but it’s way more difficult to open the door than to win a deal.  

We expect people with zero corporate experience to land meetings with executives? Never made sense to me!

Great speech. But just to be clear: closing a sale is an order of magnitude more difficult than getting a meeting.
