280k this year ( 5 )

About $250k. I started at $60k + commission. It is exhausting, but it is well rewarded.

260

Now, I think I am being underpaid. I have been working in my company for 4 years now and I get $190k and $220k including everything. My jaw dropped seeing more than $250k for my position.

I feel the same way. Someone even said $280k. I have been working for 5 years and make $220 also.

I love the pain thanks!!!

I'm curious as to why you chose to stay in finance? Also why do you torture yourself with these questions? lol

I really enjoy the work I do and love the markets. But if the markets undo and I get laid off- I’ll highly consider pivoting down the road.

Mid-level CW right here. What are great questions to ask when you're deciding between two offers?

Both are medium-sized agencies in NYC but under holding companies. I like the people more in company B (traditional creative agency) vs company A (CRM, data-driven creative agency), but company A has braver and more award-winning work. I've checked both Glassdoor/Fishbowl reviews but they're outdated or unavailable because company A is relatively new. Would love your tips. THANKS FAM!

Additional Posts in Sales

My quota is based on invoiced sales that resets quarterly. This includes a sliding-scale commission % based on how far you’re at on your quarterly goal (towards quota) which is checked/paid once a month. The only thing that goes toward our quota is PAID sales. This excludes orders still being processed by DE (largest orders) and customers still within NET payment terms. We don’t get paid until the company gets paid. Am I missing warning potential? Am I being expected of A and judged on B?
