Assuming time is of the essence, cold calling like mad. This scenario would never happen for what I sell though. My sale is a long game, and it often takes months to close. In my case, referrals are the best “in”.

Love it! I prefer the shorter sales cycle for now.. but sometimes I do envy the long game!

all of the above... spread that seed to ensure you meet the goal!

Amen to that!!

If I were in a transactional or relationship sale then I would be texting people within my accounts to see if they could do me a favor and purchase more stuff.

Petition to start using Base+Bonus (e.g. 130+50k) as a compensation comparison metric? It’s annoying when people are assuming the highest possible bonus only for the reality of a salary to be significantly less. People say their TC is 300k and it turns out they were including signing bonus, RSU, etc. actual nonsense. Just please provide the base + bonus separately so people can see what the paychecks look like and understand what the bonus potential MIGHT be but isn’t guaranteed to provide

V. annoyed by Milbank's and Cravath's bonus numbers. Our bill rates went up this year- bonuses should as well. We're potentially getting lower total comp, esp without 2018's summer bonuses. Not happy.
