For anyone that made the transition from consulting into the sales engineering organization at Google cloud, what level would an SM be expected to come in as?

I recently spoke with a Google Cloud SE, apparently the role is quite technical, and the work is very fast paced. However, I believe your day is over by 6pm.

For me its 30% commission-based when sales quota is 100% met. But the quota is set on a team level so its comp is tied to team performance and is not based on individual contribution.
