Software Sales vs. Medical Sales: would like to hear from people on both sides.
• Do you recommend your industry?
• Daily Interaction
• Work/Life
• Income growth potential
I have good opportunities in both industries, and would value feedback to help me choose. Aware of compagauge & have checked it out, btw.

$120k potential for med sales job, unsure on tech yet.

Never been in medical but would think tech is more lucrative and the work/life balance isn't bad. I think the pay is better too. 40% of jobs are now tech focused. From friends I have on the industry med also seems more corrupt

likehelpful

Solid point on 40% of jobs being tech focused, both seem to be in fields that are growing and have job security.

Agree with AE 1. Depending on your experience, $200k - $250k OTE should be doable in tech as an IC account or sales exec (mid level)

IC = individual contributor

Med device OTE is typically around $250-300k at the rep level(base ~$100k + $150k+ annual bonus). As far as corruption, not really sure what is meant by that. AE 1 or instacart1 can you clarify?

Helpful, thanks. The role is with J&J but they said only 50-60k base which is super low compared to what I have heard elsewhere.

Software sales = equity (usually)
Equity >>>>>>

What if you bridged it to a med tech rep? :)

I went from med device rep to healthcare tech rep and loved it. Definitely more growth as med device is doing more on the tech end these days.

Definitely an option. I actually had an opportunity in this realm previously but decided to stick with my employer and take a promotion there. In hindsight, I should have gone with the new company.
Thanks for the input.

My wife and I work at the same company and are at the same level, doing the same role, though different departments. She gets paid 15% less than me. I joined after her and didn't know her salary. We've been living with this for a while, and she's gone back asking for a pay bump but been denied, but she did not mention that she was married to a man who had a different pay rate. Should she go back again and mention that? She was hesistant to bring our personal lives into it, but I thought she should call that out specifically. I'm not sure what I should do on my side.
