I’m thinking of leaving my role in June. We’re paid quarterly commission checks a pay period (month) after the close of the period. So Q2 will be paid out on August 1.
Do you think I will miss out on my earned commission if I leave? I also have a stock vest coming up in September so I’m wondering if I just suck it up for the summer and leave a little later.

Check your firm's company policy manual to confirm, but you typically need to be employed when payout happens, regardless of when the work got done. Unless you already have an amazing offer right now, wait and put in notice after payouts and vesting.

Anyone living close to an office, got a holiday party with food and drinks, and the venue started open for them until around midnight.

I am trying to move from my farming role back to an outbound prospecting position. I have a couple screening calls for some pretty awesome companies and I would love some pointers on how to beat the objection that I have only been in my farming role since June. How would you sell the fact you want to go back to SDR, I am sick and tired of non revenue generating activity and miss having a list to attack.


I’m a Mid Market Account Executive , just signed, and my annual TC is $250k , base is $110,000 , $10k signing bonus, $80k in options, and $110,000 variable. Is this right for the market?


Hi All! Would anyone be willing to give me a referral to an Account Executive role at MSFT, AMZN, or GOOGL. Currently Account Executive at Dell and foucused on Cloud services (yes we have cloud services at dell lol)?

Question for any/all who will answer. Long time individual contributor(12+ years) to a fortune 100 company. Past 7+ years have earned between 600k-800k /year after building out a GTM PE practice which currently does $30M+. Looking to take that framework and replicate for any startup or mid market company with direct GTM B2B looking to accelerate revenue. What’s a reasonable ask on equity vs earned income. Thinking 2-4% and 300-400k/ year. Thoughts?


Don’t assume that more likes and comments directly lead to sales. I’ve had posts with 20 likes that generated me more leads than a post with 100 likes.

Sales is a funny thing.

Big pipeline doesn’t mean more revenue.

Accurate pipeline does


I know some times this job is hard, it’s not all steaks and martinis but that rush when you are at 99.2 percent for the the quarter and that last deal that would push you over the top comes in is exhilarating! Happy end of quarter!

What are some “typical” career paths for Account Executives other than working up towards the largest enterprise AE roles. After being in sales for 6 years, I’m relatively naive to any other than “leadership” and wonder what other options to consider are out there. I’d even be open so some not so typical ones that people have enjoyed/found success in. Thanks in advance!


Hi All, any tips on sales presentation for bdr in saas sales? Im reaching my final round of interview. Much appreciated


Hi everyone, I just accepted an offer as an account executive for NetApp. I am just under 3 years of experience. I have a 75k base with an OTE of 125k. Is that average? Good? I’d like to know what people think of this. I’m also outside of the DC area.


Finally after many rejection, i have an offer to me as BDR for a saas company that just setting up a new team here in my country. I count myself blessed though was through a recruiter that arranged the interview and offers. The Comp $55k base + OTE 40% of the base + Health coverage + 4days work week. What did you guys think?


Hey all- I’m a L&D Professional with some sales experience. I want to jump into Sales L&D but many roles require sales experience. I’ve helped close complex sales for large scale project work but have never been held accountable to monthly revenue targets since it wasnt my primary role with the exception of a brief time spent as an SDR. Looking for input if I should just go for Sales L&D positions or start as an AE and then apply for Sales L&D. Currently have interview for AE role with Gartner.

Rate my compensation package:
Role: presales SE
Location: Rhode Island
Base: $130k
TTC: $185k

Any *experienced* AE’s here in the cloud/data management/cybersecurity space interested in a new role?

Veeam, Rubrik, Dell, EMC, IT MSP background is a plus

Happy to refer

Hi all, looking to make the switch to tech sales (with no sales experience). I think I will have to take a slight pay cut to get into the industry. I would be interested to hear from anyone who has had to do this. Did it work out? Are you enjoying it? Or is there a way I can avoid the pay cut? Would only be by about 6k. TIA!
