interviewing for BDR as AE - need help! Thank you!
Hello! Currently an account exec for software company. I am interviewing at a new company and now I am unsure of what to do. The new role is a BDR rep on the marketing team - hired to bridge the gap between sales and marketing- but still requires lots of prospect calls and emails, just unsure of exactly what that will look like. I am hoping to get more out of the position ( and will get clarity during next interview) to learn more about marketing and actually become VALUABLE to the company.
I am over my AE role right now- and feel like i am stuck in groundhogs day. and i am provided with very limited growth potential and it is a do or die sales mentality. i have zero time for prof dev or projects because it is only about hitting a sale.
-is it a down grade to move from AE to BDR?
-my current OTE is around $110, this role OTE is $80-85 + some bonus but they were unsure what that was yet because the position is still new/flexible. it is a really awesome start up that I really believe in the product, so I am sure there is lots of room for growth/not all about compensation
-it seems the role would be less stressful and not so quota based (which is really what I want) but I just fear they will change the role to be strictly cold call and set up appointments for sales even though its on marketing
-any one in BDR with tips to negotiate my salary and expectations?
- thoughts? am I discrediting myself by taking this role?
