That’s what I’ve always done. As long as commission is uncapped, why wouldn’t you?

If you're a sales rep no. if you want stability and not get caught in the waves of sales, go into management.

exception: you need a mortgage and they won't count your variable for a mortgage properly

I always shoot for the higher base. Because you can't really know what OTE realistically could be before you join
