Yes... since you as a salesperson don't have control over delivery or product performance, you SHOULD be paid on bookings

Yes if you’re an SDR or opener. If you’re in a closing role, no. You should be getting paid a percentage of net new revenue.

I would love to get paid know bookings. I get paid on projects only after they invoice. As it was noted above there is a total lose of control on when the project is completed and what your end margin really is.

Note to removal defense lawyers. Bond approved last Tuesday, one week before today’s merits hearing. Client couldn’t get out of jail because bond payments in central Ohio can only be made on Tuesday and Thursday. Luckily, Judge continued hearing so client can be placed on non-detained docket. Lesson is to know when bond can be paid in your area to try to avoid future problems.

Is MBB (mostly thinking about McKinsey) really that bad in terms of WLB? I feel like people tend to exaggerate things sometimes - i was told i'd be working approximately 65h at Deloitte in Tech Strategy and honestly that barely ever happened. I wasn't considering switching since I love my job and my team, but many people are telling me I shouldn't "waste" my potential at Deloitte (whatever that means...). They kind of got to me and now i'm looking for more info about the culture/work at MBB.
