SMB SaaS reps or sales leaders- Any of your company’s reduce quotas across-the-board any time in these last 6 months?
If so, what was the reasoning provided?
If not, reasoning?

Thanks in advance!

We really avoid cutting quota at all costs. We have reduced quota across teams in the past 6 months but only because we laid off 30% of our staff, unfortunately, so it was kind of necessary. Individuals' quotas remained the same.

My company has reduced quota in the last 6 months also. We are working with a limited team as there were some lay offs and we are currently on a hiring freeze.

We haven't received any word about quotas being reduced...but I would also think that's an industry thing (e.g., ours is one in demand). I would imagine others may not have the same luxury

I am being offered a Senior AE role, but the Head of B2B is also hiring a Head of Sales, North America.

I met with the person who will be leading NA sales, and do not think hes the right person for the job. Not someone I think I can learn much from.

Would you share this with the Head of B2B? Or is it not my place?

In June I started a new role, but recently out of the blue I was let go as "not a good fit". There were no warning signs, I wasn't on any type of goal program and had just gotten my first deal. I was also working on a few others. At the time my mother was very ill and in the hospital, thankfully she's better. The employer knew this and to let me go in this manner as well as it's the holiday season, it's really starting to bother me. I wonder if there's any recourse?
