Did you intend to have a 50/50 option in there? That's most common for sure...

Good to know. Here it depends on industry actually but I don't know about people working in big tech how they get comped so it's why I ask.

That sounds stable, but what about the targets? How does that model work?

Last two companies (media) that I have been with are structured with a salary for a year then 100% commission. One was a national company, second was under 100 people.Β

Mine is around 30/70. Base has remained pretty similar but commission portion/OTE has grown over the yearsΒ
