How do you all view the importance of your base/commission ratio as part of your compensation plan? Is it worth it to stick it out with a company where 2/3 of OTE is commission based?

2/3 OTE Being commission is uncommon. Most are 40/60, 50/50, 60/40. I’d negotiate for a higher base

This is my opinon. It all matters on your confidence of how well you can meet your comp plan. If you are very confident in your sales strategy and meeting quota the yeah go for a larger comp plan over the base. If you do it right the accelerators, I available, should be very rewarding. If you are not confident in hitting or surpassing your quota aim for a role with a higher base.
