This company I am interviewing with is not proposing a base salary and an OTE. They are asking me to create it and I really need guidance here. It’s an AE role in medical SaaS sales for orthopedics surgery. What do I need to ask? So far I know that they cover medical insurance, there is no 401k, and there are private company stock options. It’s mainly inside sales with maybe 10% travel. My thought was 75k base and 110k OTE. But they are saying to lower the base and increase OTE.

Just finished an interview for an AE role at a high-growth SaaS organization. The interviewer told me that their quotas are very high - barely any of their sales reps hit quota YoY. They mentioned, “goals are high to push our reps. hence our YoY growth” Is this a red flag?

When making the Jump from AAE to AE, what should the salary be? How much of a salary increase should I expect if I got promoted within my current agency vs. getting hired as an AE at a different agency. Trying to see if I want to stick it out at my agency or start interviewing over the next 6 months.

How does one make a switch from account executive to account management? I was recently asked in an AM interview how I would go about from managing 10 clients to 75 clients. I would love the feedbacks for AMs in here.

I’ve been in the auto industry (inside sales, think account executive type positive. As well as supply chain, marketing and incentives experience) for over 10 years. I have a wide array of skills that could be applied to almost any industry. I’ve had a really hard time transitioning/translating that in my resume as well as in interviews. Feeling like I am pigeonholed into automotive forever. Trying to find something involving less travel and in my hometown for personal reasons.

SalesForce folks, a recruiter reached out for an opportunity to interview for a AE position in my specialty.

Any one know of pay difference between the two, responsibilities/expectations, how they are viewed in the org itself? I understand they are different but in my job today, I handle both roles so can go in either direction. Appreciate any input.

I’m interviewing for an AE position at a smaller agency, about 80 people.
