My dear Egyptian king - that's a tough one. Especially because glassdoor is based on opinions. I'll say it'd be great to leverage more than one source when considering a new company.ย

This is great and really hit home with how my current plan is set up.

Been there Savage - Transparency with the employee is a must. Have you addressed this with the person accountable for that final commission report?ย

Absolutely - but we're a small company who likes to pretend to be a big company and makes everything more complicated because it's fun I guess?

I track it all on my own to be safe, but it gets complicated because it depends on when it was billed, what it was, when it was paid, when commission is paid etc etc obnoxious.ย 

Trying to rework the whole plan because I think that'll be easier - so this article helps a ton.ย
