my manager bitched about me not sharing commission with him because he "is the leader" and "assigned” the leads to me. other sales reps also got approached with the same topic. For the record we have a system of lead assignment, and took me almost a year to work on the deal (not like he had negotiated everything and asked me to run the contract) is it like an unspoken rule in the sales world? I've never have a manger in the past asked for this, like we would go out to celebrate but never got asked to split cash. what do you guys think?
Is it common for sales manager to ask his rep to share commission with him?
