AWS vs. GCP (Sales)

I missed an offer at GCP after making it to pack review due to a poor final interview.. GCP came back a year later asking me to reinterview.. AWS reached out a few days later and im starting from scratch at both.. if you’re looking to get into cloud sales... who do you like better? I’m leaning GCP.. WDYT?

    Gcp is building their org so more growth but unorganized and missing the support structure

      Yup it’s a losing race for google. Their revenue is equal to how much AWS grew year over year. There is no catching up at this point. Microsoft does have a strong chance though.

      Uh, G has double the growth and are about 1/4 the size.

      If these rate continue (not saying they will), G catches up to A in like 6 years... Way less than forever.

      I thought GCP was like 1/10 the size of AWS, not 1/3.5

      It’s not going to happen, we have less than 1% of the fortune 2000 companies with spend on the platform, and that’s where the majority of the market is. The google number is also inflated because it includes GSuite which is significant.

      GCP revenue is barely 2b for the entire year, the number here is wrong

    OP
    GCP in London at least.. they do a phone screen with a recruiter, then the hiring manager will screen you.. then you come onsite for 3-4 in person interviews then there is regional pack review then HQ reviews your hiring pack.. HQ reviewed my pack.. asked me to do one more interview and an ENT sales rep asked me some really technical questions and I dropped the ball. Now I have to start from scratch

      New hire is very rare unless it’s a specific new grad program. Even the entry level inside sales roles want 3-5 YOE. External field sales have 10-20 YOE

      Breaking into new field always tough, gotta find someone willing to take the chance on ya.

      OP, when you said starting from scratch, guessing you're in sales already but would be first time in the cloud space?

      OP
      I’ve been in outside sales for 7 years.. google provides basic material and I obviously prepared but a few very specific questions caught me off guard.. getting back to my original question... google or amazon? I have employee references & referrals for both.. I now have a masters in cloud computing.. culturally from a sales perspective and overall career trajectory who do you go with??

      If you want to do sales and make big $$, Amazon. If you want to rest and vest and have the Google vulture, Google.
