Do you have to do comp corrections at the end of every sales month because the reporting and finance team never get it right?

The past 3 months I have spent no less then 2 full workdays in each month doing corrections for deals I was not paid on or not paid correctly on. Just today I resubmitted something for the 4th time now to my manager for finance to fix. Im sick of wasting my selling time doing someone elseโ€™s job. I am asked to do my corrections and am held to that, so why do I still not get paid correctly after submitting my corrections? They have one job. I have to submit them another time and another time before itโ€™s actually done. If I wasnโ€™t my own advocate, I would miss out on thousands and thousands of dollars in my paycheck monthly. Do other companies have such difficulties? I specifically sell advertising to car dealerships

Are comp corrections the demise of your existence?

If sales people didnโ€™t have quotas, and were paid just a flat rate of whatever they sold, do you think think that A)Salespeople would work just as hard? B) Create a better culture within the Sales Org? C) Create better relationships with their buyers?

If you join a SaaS company and thrive at the beginning due to inbound leads and good SDR and then sales start going down due to a change of SDR and less inbounds, does that mean youโ€™re not a competent sales person or does it mean itโ€™s time to move on to another company?
