Hello everyone. I'm currently in healthcare sales and I was interested in AE roles because the pay seems good however every entry AE role I've applied at the base is low...like 30-50k low..is that the going rate for entry AE? The OTE isn't that high either, the last AE job I interviewed for had a 50k OTE..and that's not enough for me in this economy...I have a four year degree and 2 years of sales experience..the pay just seems..really low. Thanks

What companies? Maybe my perspective is inflated by SaaS but AE base should be no less than 75 for new AES

like

Otter AE is 30k base...just random companies I've applied to on LinkedIn

30k for an AE is a joke because most companies have made quotas so high it's hard to ever hit 100%, in fact 20 years ago 80-90% of people hit quota and now it's 10-20% to cut costs. So I would not do that unless you want to put in alot of work and get paid nothing for it.

You got to careful with the OTE, some other companies will state 50k + OTE but that’s achieving target of 100% KPI, if you don’t achieve that figure you’ll end of normal basic pay which could be just 25k. Make sure you ask questions, ppl fall into this trap when they get an offer

smart

That does seem low. What companies have you applied at?

Otter AE pays 30k base

That’s low. Most I’ve seen are base of 60-70k, OTE varies.

Check out repvue they have some good information

The job market is quite tough these days. However, if you keep looking you’ll be able to find a better offer, but I doubt it’ll be more than 60K base.
