IDK, are you working hard ?

Seriously though my last manager did the same thing. We did not have the best relationship.

Bad sign if the numbers aren't there, but it also could just be his dry sense of humor. I've endured that same crap from my dad for as long as I can remember.

I am coming to the conclusion that saying you won't raise your kids in any one religion and let your kids decide when they're older is simply a means of punting on dealing with coming from competing faith traditions (because you fundamentally cannot mix the two religions) in your own interfaith marriage at present. It's just pure conflict avoidance strategy in one's own marriage rather than a decision on how children will be raised.

Am I right or wrong? Discuss...

I have been with my company 20+ years. This past year they did a sales market restructure - directions from new upper management. The restructure has been less than favorable toward my commission goals. The coming years don’t look promising. There are sales people making $$$ only here 1-2 years because they were given all my opportunities. It is hard to leave this company - it has been great until now with the changes. I have a very strong job offer elsewhere - but worried about non compete.

Commission plan discussion:
I was promoted to Director of Sales and am tasked with revamping our sales commission plans

We are in a high margin industry, the majority of the team’s sales are transactional, so they are quick closes, and they have a base around 60k

Current plan is: 3, 5, 6, and 8% of revenue depending on different factors

I am thinking of streamlining to make everything 10%. (5% paid upfront when they land the sale, 5% paid once invoiced).

Thoughts? Things to consider?
