My company was acquired last year & new terrritoy assignments were made Jan 1st. The old AEs had until the end of Jan to close out deals they were working to receive 100% commissions & quota relief. The new AE taking over received 50% comm if the deals closed in Jan. After Feb 1st, the new AE taking on the account received 100% comm and the old AE received nothing. The two deals I had worked for months and in procurement Feb 1 close last week at 445k & $399k. $60+k comm to new AE - $0 to me. 😩

This isn't that unusual tbh.


Yup, that’s the kind of shit that makes people look for greener pastures.


I would ask if there is a way to split this. The person who received the bonus 100% knows that it wasn’t as a result of their efforts.

I’ve seen this go both ways. I would escalate to your immediate boss, and then continue to escalate if he/she can’t say yes.

This is EXACTLY why good people leave their organization.


Ouch… sorry man. I felt this one for you…

I would ask for an exception and see if you can work with both leaders. Or can you ask for a spot bonus? I would be livid.

Yeah always happen, this is not a fifth you can EJ

Damn what did I write even 😂 autocorrect is the worst. I meant that those territory switch always happen.

You can always try to see if I’m the new territory you have a pipeline you could benefit from as well.

That's ridiculous. It's not like you chose to move to a different territory.

Yeah - we have sales cycles that can last years. Putting together the business plan, the budget, prioritizing our project over others can easily take 2 - 3 years. Management decides to split the territory and hire a new AE....and she then gets credit & commission for my $3.6MM deal. 2.5 years later and she has not closed a goddamn thing.

Hi 👋🏾 All new to bowl


F 27 180k OTE + RSUs... husband can’t figure his shit out after 5 years of promises... but when there’s no responsibility it’s a novel type romance. He’s always supportive of my career, never made me feel self conscious about my body, but contributes nothing. Career failed for him and he has no goals or ambition. His misery is infectious and I’ve tried everything I can do to help him. When do you fold? When is Shakespeare love not enough?

I currently work in Healthcare as a respiratory therapist for 10 years. I have been at my job, currently, for a little over 5 years. Alongside my bachelors degree I also have a masters degree in healthcare administration. Although, I am happy with my current position as a respiratory therapist, there seems to be not a lot career growth with where the department I currently work in within my healthcare system. I am wondering what doors/opportunities I have if I were to utilize my masters degree?

So I’ve only been a month at a tech company as a CSM and they liked my work enough to move me internally to another team as an Enterprise CSM. I said I would accept an interviewer to learn more about the role. Afterwards the new hiring manager said they want to move forward with me. Long story short, the directors of the sales had an opening and want to move. My question are: Am I in a position to negotiate? What should I be asking for? Total ARR I’m responsible for is $7.5m around 100 accounts

Calling all the folks in the SaaS selling space. I genuinely want to know what makes having SaaS selling industry experience so unique? Here’s a little background: I was negatively impacted during the pandemic when working at a hospitality SaaS company as a CSM. Now I’m trying to work my way back into the SaaS space as either a sales professional or CSM but I feel like my six years of selling experience is being discounted because it wasn’t in the SaaS industry.
