Everyone is so excited for green light, but the $$ difference between a 2 and 3 (or 1 and 2) is almost insufficient after taxes. Are ppl just excited to hear about promos or is it really the $$?

Also, my service area just switched over to the scatter plots this year and I've heard the year end consensus meetings were really heated and ugly - definitely not the same as previous years. I'm just not that excited. Maybe it's me being all Eeyore, glass half empty 😕

AIP target %s increase at more senior levels. I don't have the exact #s, but I think it's up to maybe 10-15% for C, up to 20% for SCs, 25% for M and 35% for SM. Those are rough #s and the top of the range is jus my for 1 performers.

What is typical bonus for a 1 vs a 2

% not $

The difference in salary/bonus between a 1 and a 2 is pretty big, much bigger than between a 2 and a 3.

Anyone have actual percentages for bonus they got at SC for a 1 or a 2? Last year as a C I got a 2 and got a 10.5% bonus.

Last year I got 20% bonus with a 1, was my first year at SC.

32% but it wasn't last year

Hi! I am trying to conduct some competitive analysis specifically on a set of metrics (e.g. latency) for the purpose of benchmarking.
The challenge here is that most of these metrics are not public, so I'm curious how others may have approached similar initiatives. I think some anecdotal data points can be gathered through the sales team but such data obviously comes with a tone of caveats on accuracy.
