What is it like working as a Technical Sales Engineer?
Technical Sales Engineer in Leicester:
"B2B Sales Face To Face, Telephone And Email. New/Existing."
Pros: Nice to travel to different locations, see new places and people. Learn and gain knowledge in many areas. Can start later or finish earlier sometimes. Flexible time as the rotation is designed by me. Company phone which I can use myself, car for work and personal, laptop which I can use for personal now and expense account meaning I'm not out of pocket money. Change of scenery regularly, not the same view each day.
Cons: Can be a lot of miles to cover, regularly 1000 per week. This can lead to time away from home, some very early starts and late finishes. Also can spend 8 hours a day on my own in the car. Sometimes need to travel overseas, meaning loss of spare time and unable to enjoy my evenings as desired. Expectation to visit many people in a very wide area, not always realistic. Head office is located abroad, this means different understandings and demands. Sometimes things are lost in translation.
