Looking for some advice.
I have been in sales for over 5 years. Mostly in the tech/saas industry. I love the sales but I am a perfectionist so I am constantly stressing out trying to over perform on my number or “quota”. In all roles I’ve held, I’ve always been an over performer because of this. (Presidents club and in the top 6% etc)
I’ve worked at two different companies about 2.5 years each.
At the beginning of this year, I started at a new company and went into an Account Manager role focusing on up-selling within a book of business and moved away from new business in hopes that it would be less stressful. Although, I thought this would be less stressful, it’s proving to not be the case because COVID has made it pretty difficult.
It has me wondering about my long term career and what I want to do. I have been struggling with my mental health more than ever since COVID hit, so I am in desperate need of some sort of relief that way.
My husband and I are going to try for kids in the next year or two so I am going to need a job with less stress, especially when trying to conceive.
I still feel like I’m pretty early in my career, so the questions are....
1. Am I feeling this way due to COVID? (Would I not be as stressed out if this wasn’t happening)
2. Would being a Customer Success Manager be a good fit for a role with less stress? If not, what do you think the next best option is?
3. What are your thoughts on this situation? Advice?
Thanks so much everyone and stay safe!!

I am not quite sure what to put this in the comments.
But at my work, they pay the males more than they pay the females, even if the females have degrees. I have three degrees. The two men that I work with get more then I do. The one that just got hired gets $2 more an hour then I do & has no experience or degrees, the other one has been there one month longer then me & is handsome & never even finished school with a very shady past & gets $3 more an hour then I do. I have also worked in this industry for over 25 years. I’m very upset about this & have already approached management about it twice. Any suggestions?

I ran across this article on salary negotiation.
The tips come from an Indiana University professor of business law and management. I thought I would share since I've seen posts in the past asking how to negotiate.

I have been working for a company for over 7 years.
I'm a valued worker and am excellent at what I do. I am an accounts manager and I spend a lot of time working with customers and ensuring the accounts of sales projects are correct and in scope of their contracts. However, our workplace is toxic. The salesMEN are very demanding and demeaning of their coworkers. They are non-communicative, demanding, and rude. The boss seems to be more interested in money from sales than the moral of the overall workers. I have had confrontations with a couple of these salesmen as I try to provide support to them. My boss just told me he wants me to work from home because they feel I'm am difficult to work with. I am concerned about not being able to fully complete my job tasks now as I am isolated from my co-workers. Even though me boss has provided me with computers, dual monitors, phone and a printer at my home, it feels like I'm being pushed out.

I have a hearing in my county with the Department of Labor and the School System where I worked.
I was a clerk who was forced to resign so they wouldn’t have to pay unemployment. I appealed and now three years later, I have a hearing. Any suggestions on the best way to handle these jerks ?
