What should an SDR straight out of uni with 5 years of sales related experience expect to make in Europe? (Software Sales)

Candidly, working holidays over a five year period does not equal 5 years experience.

I realised this after posting as well which is why I added a comment with additional context. Converting my total hours worked (40weeks*110h), my time on the job should equate to about 2,3 years of a 40h/week job (48 working week/year).

It really depends in which country in Europe you work. While top SDRs in The Netherlands receive offers for up to 70k€ per ear, German companies might only offer 40k€.
In which country are you located?

Yes, 70k OTE as an SDR is already pretty good. 50k is a more realistic starting salary.
There are AEs in NL who make less than 70k OTE..

For some additional context: I have been working in a sales role over all my holidays in the past 5 years. I have consistently ranked among the top reps and generated revenues in the 7 figures. I am consistently making ~13K €/month. It is important to note, that this is a high intensity role (90-120h/week) and I understand that I would be earning less in a less intense role. The offers I have rn are around 50K €/year OTE. Seems low coming from my previous compensation but for a more relaxed role straight after uni it might be decent? Am I selling myself under my value?

When considering €/time it would be almost at the same level. ~27€/h previously down to ~24€/h. New role would only be ~40/h per week with weekends and bank holidays off (regular employee)

I absolutely love this company so far. I know my worth is higher than 85k base but sheesh. The way they value me and treat their employees right. Maybe it’s worth the lesser pay?
