The Big Corps like IBM, Salesforce, and the like pay peanuts on base and overall pay. A lot of them have small territories which have likely been worked to death.
The Series A and B startups might pay a lot but they are unstable and you will be looking for a new job within a year.
RepVue can only tell you so much as a lot of companies ask their reps to give them good reviews on it.
I wonder if really the trick is to find Series C and Series D startups that are hiring for AEs? How about a company that recently went public?
I like to hear your thoughts on this.
