All,

I have 200 base and 350 OTE. I’ll do about 800 this year and did 600 last year. Curious what the other major accounts people are doing at more stable firms than GE.

History is top sales officer for two start up and prior to that GM type roles in product for two others. Prior to that marketing and engineering for another global 500 firm.

The money is great but I’m so used to being “in the tent” I’m curious if this kind of comp is possible at a FAANG or hot startup.

    350 OTE is fairly common in tech sales. If you can do 200% of plan, getting in the 600-800 range is in the general range of what most startups, midsize, and large tech companies would comp. In my experience the trick is getting into a role where you can overachieve. It usually does not last for multiple years in the same company regardless of how good you are. That being said, all the sales VP at my company make a steady 700+.

      Are you sure they’re doing 700+? That include all their RSU’s? I made more than my VP’s last year. I prefer to be a sales lead to being MAE

      Correct- including about 200k/year RSU.

      $350K is definitely possible if you overachieve or are very senior. I’m not sure if it’s that common. You have to be amazing to pull in those kinds of numbers. Most will never get there.

      I’m doubling the 350K, so that’s wrong. 350 OTE is the job. There must be many of these level paying jobs at other SaaS companies
