Are Tesla’s good cars for sales reps?

1 year ago

A Model S or Model X is flashy. Those cars are $70K new. A Model 3 is $40K and only as flashy as a BMW 3-series or brands like Lexus, Acura, or Infiniti. Cost of ownership is on par with a Camry or Accord, though the upfront is 10-15K more and you'll go through tires unless you're a grandma. If the supercharger network is dense in your coverage area, or you mostly base at one location, you won't have much trouble.

What are your thoughts on Medical Equipment sales like capital equipment versus a traditional disposable medical device job?

I think they're important to use when you are first trying to break into the industry but become less necessary as you work your way up.

A lot hire from outside the industry but why would you want to leave software sales? Device jobs seem to be topping out and if you have a great year your quota will be so high the next year you will barely make any money.

I know software sales reps making bank and barely working.

ZS Associates: More than half of doctors have 'no access' policies for reps

2 years ago

Why would you say that? ZS does everything for sales management and recommends when to layoff sales reps and what the quotas should be. If the CEO's of medical device and pharmaceutical companies realized how many decisions were made by ZS as opposed to sales leadership, those same CEO's would elect to fire 80% of management at their company.
