Just wondering, I have been in the sales game for some years now and have had several salary talks. For me I have almost always argued for a higher salary then what has been presented to me (I am also a global top performer).
I have a few questions, first being, am I trouble maker for asking for more (doing it while keeping it to the point of course and actively think about keeping emotions out of it)? Do you guys accept whatever is proposed to you or do you request for more? When the manager suggest a salary increase what do they justify it with usually, if anything? What is a “normal” % annual base salary increase for you guys?
