Don't get me wrong y'all!
I really like all the people which have been promoted to an outside position. They're all great people. Two of them put a lot of revenue through, but did not have a good "net gain". I put a lot of revenue through AND had the highest net gain.
My co-workers must be doing well in the new positions, or I'm sure would have moved them back inside.
A friend I started with was in my channel, but not doing well. He was "too" meticulous. They offered him an outside position, working with customers which currently spend nothing with us. He's doing really well there. That type of a moved makes perfect sense.
But with me and the other 2 which applied, it was not a good move not to promote any of us, because now we almost feel like we need to do "less" well.
I asked to work outside accounts in Ottawa this summer. My director called me about this aft'. I'm sure she has her nose out of joint a bit, since it came from the top down. But our national sales director told me to another manager at head office, so I did.
Hopefully it will be a positive meeting next week. She's probably happy to be rid of me at this point!
The greatest things in life are not things.
