    Strategy is the highest selling segment @ SFDC. Typically Fortune 50. The most senior level folks at Salesforce are on those accounts as client account directors. Below that is the Key division. F200 - you’d work about 3-7 accounts depending.

    There's like 100 different types of AEs at Salesforce this needs to be far more specific. Based on role/experience/Segment comp can vary $100k-$500k+

    Hey everyone. I just got off the phone with a recruiter. I’m not looking to be in a strictly hunter role anymore and the position was just that. That being said, I’m curious, what is he compensation like for the Mid-Market AE role at Salesforce? Companies with 200-1,000 employees.

    I’m not interested in that role but was wondering.

      Probably 140-160k OTE, zero stock. 0-10k sign on bonus. Also, if you're not well experienced enough don't be surprised if you end up interviewing with managers in GRB or SB and money goes down from there.

      How many years of saas sales experience do you have?

    Research your patch first. We had one guy who was shocked to find out he was #4 in three years.
