Search for a new job

That super awkward "in-between" time, when you are searching for a job and close a big deal and now unsure whether or not to leave (or continue to interview ) or wait for your commission check.


Spare the signing bonus stuff; it's always more rewarding to get your hard earn commish !!!

Have been there as well. Ultimately, your career and your happiness is more important then a single closed won deal and minor commish check. If the commish is a lifechanging amount, I'd stick it out. Otherwise, do what makes you happy.

Definitely. How much will the commission cheque change your life compared to what leaving a less than stellar job will do?

If you're halfway out, try out the new one. If you're starting, better to wait.

The way I see it is, you're already halfway out.ย

Try to find a lawyer you can talk to for free to look over your compensation plan and state labor laws before making a decision. I made that fatal mistake once.

I'd say leave if you find another good fit, just make sure you stay until that commission check has hit your bank account
