Hi all,

I got a very good offer(package) from a very good MNC and my role is Staff Sales Consultant in Pre Sales Team .
The next higher step to this role would be Solution Architect.

I have 6 yrs of experience in Java and have been involved in development team throughout.

I am little confused about this role since this is something new to me.

Can anyone tell me something about this role and the future prospects about this role.

I am thinking this role could help me gain experience in client interaction, designing applications, estimation and analysis
which I am not supposed do in a normal development team.

Is this right ?



Thanks,
Harish

Weill, you will definitely gain experience with clients. In fact, a good sales engineer will be juggling many clients at the same time.

As for the type of experience, that would depend on the company, and the products -- but I would guess it runs the gamut. Some products pretty much sells themselves, and the SE is mostly doing presentations and some demos. Other products are complicated (and expensive) and will require long "proof of concepts". And because of follow on sales, many SEs do support too.
