Need some help regarding sales quotas. Can management increase your quota solely because you’re doing well and exceeding it? I’ve been here less than a year, and have since established my capabilities with sales, and my numbers now put me in at number 3 highest selling sales rep of the entire company. My quota has now been changed 3 times since being here, with the latest increase being a jump of 2x what my previous quota was, just because I had a good month. Is this normal/fair?

I’m a senior sales person that just left my first job (where I was ranked top 10% in sales, worked for 5 years, qualified for presidents club 3 times & was very well known & respected) for a new company that will definitely be better, but I am starting over. Also, working from home for the first time (last job deemed “essential”).

Hi! Looking for some advice on tech sales vs non-tech sales.
I’m 27 and have been with tech companies for 5 years (BDR, hybrid BDR/SMB sales, and then customer care type role).
I’m currently interviewing for a Sales Exec role at a company that provides virtual mental health services, so I would not be in the tech realm necessarily. I’m wondering if this will negatively impact me in the future, if I try to get back in the tech world.
