So it's 2nd week of new job, quota unset, new process, new industry should I go hard or keep it chill?
I feel like there's a few schools of thought
1: Go hard, Impress your manager with stellar performance set the bar high from the beginning and get better and better
2: Keep it chill, do good work, dont stress yourself out too much, set meetings, make it look hard
3: purposely underperform to set the bar low, so new hires are not expected of as much, especially if ur mgr has not discussed quota expectations or 90 day expectations
Each with their own benefits and disadvantages, obviously the better you do the more you get paid, and the worse you do the worse you look. but if you are helping establish the 'bar' or the 'curve' wouldn't it be nice if you underperforming is 100% quota?
