Moving to a competitor???

currently - $55k salary, $90k OTE.


being head-hunted to work for a competitor, aiming for $75k salary $150k OTE, if not more.


should I feel bad for going to a competitor? Feel guilty for the colleagues I’m leaving?


fuck em? ( not literally, though... nvm)



let me know savages. ✌🏻

Should have mentioned that - every one of our sales reps has left to various competitors, the place i’d be going to actually has a rep that I worked with for a while back in my SDR days.Β 

pretty sure non compete / non solicit won’t be a problem but, I will keep that in mind.

thanks Goose

You should always put yourself in your best interest than the company you work for.

There’s almost no need to show loyalty unless you have equity. Find money. Act like your favorite free agent who leaves your team and hunts their money.Β

No, you shouldn’t feel bad people literally do this every day.Β

Straight up - fuck no, do what you have to do. That being said... it will get old quickly and if calling on the same clients/verticals it makes for a weird introduction "Remember all the good things I said about XYX and he bad things about ABC - scrap that".

Find a new challenge and kill it dude!

Do you like your current role/company? Have you tried asking for a raise, with market data that proves you are worth more? Don't say you got an offer or you're interviewing with XYZ...just toss some numbers out there.

Call me what you want, just sign the damn contract
Assuming you've done the due diligence on everything else, this seems like a no-brainer. Make the move.
