In comms structure, what do you think of this?

Brand new client - 25% of new-client fees for 6 months. Plus a 3% trail commission after the client has been with us for 12 months
Referred client - (where you have helped in the process) - 10% of new client fees for 6 months
Upsold client - (where you have helped in the upselling) - 25% of upsold fees for 6 months

Never had a trail comms structure before…

In need of some advice. I'm waiting on a job offer for a job I really want. If I were to be offered the job, the two week notice would fall right around my vacation time. I'm only been at my job about 5 months but have had this vacation on the books since I started. Would I be a terrible person if I use it as my last week of the two weeks so I'm paid and to start the new job the Monday after I get back? I'm so ready to leave this current job as it was not anything like they told me.
