So the challenge to me is that it may be a negative mark in an interview to ask the question that will get the answer I want to know. The question is: Are your processes and responsibilities well defined? That can potentially translate to "I can't work in a fluid SaaS environment". I want to know the ...

Even though I can speak from experience, I will say your mileage may vary. I think that the certification I had from Gainsight helped me get past the screening call decent amount of times and I had only 8 months of CS experience going for companies with a bigger reputation than my last company.

It would be informative, but will not normally foster a conversation and that would be saved for the actual EBR which would also include feature release info, etc. yet it will remind the customer of ROI if they begin making budgetary decisions before our next EBR ------------------------------ Kevin ...

For me, it has to be the time to first aha moment or time to first milestone. Time to first value can be instantaneous in most cases. Take for example my company ringcentral. If a customer didnt have a phone service and now they have a phone service, that's instant value. But that is too easy and sometimes ...

While I can't speak to my entire organization, RingCentral gives us autonomy to treat our book of business as if it is our business. So all communications does flow through me, and I engage with the appropriate departments as needed. This enables me to really have a 360 degree view of my customers and ...
