I have final interviews tomorrow for an opportunity with a company and team I am REALLY excited to potentially join. I am meeting (separately) with the global legal VPs, another company non-legal executive, and finally, the CLO. I’ve never been in an interview process like this before, so I would love advice to knock it out of the park. I assume it’s more a personality interview, since my potential boss and his boss both really liked me, to ensure it’s a good fit for all. Thanks everyone!

I’m a pre sales SE and my variable comp is based entirely on team performance. The sales guys are pressured to build their pipeline, and so the quality of targets and leads in the pipeline is low. It’s not possible to hit 100% of my commission target. Last Q I got 20% of goal. My individual performance is highly praised and my boss is worried I’ll quit and is trying to adjust my comp plan. Is this par for the course? Or should I get comped better despite poor team performance?
