Was on a PIP, closed a deal that would get me off of it. However, since my manager hopped on the closing call to help me he told me "that wasn't 100% you, so you don't get 100% of the deal credit" and gave some to another failing rep on my team. Left me $1,500 short on my monthly quota and therefore I missed the goal to get off of PIP and I was burn-down-the-building mad.
Called him out to management, got a stay of execution, and got off of PIP the following month, but he was given a manager PIP in return for the bullshit he pulled. He made my life a living hell from there on, and about 90 days later I found another job and GTFO. He was fired the following month for inappropriate behavior.
Director of Business Development
My second sales boss cost me several grand in commission. I had two separate deals that he forced me to walk back discounts on for realllllllly dumb reasons even though neither one of them pushed out of a quarter. The guy was generally an idiot. But he was never in the office so I got to work remote a lot, which was great.
This guy needed help sending emails and couldn't figure out SalesLoft for the life of him. He was leading a team of SDR's at a Saas company! The absolute incompetence was astounding. On top of that he never said anything of substance, only used buzzwords.
Director of Customer Experience
How do people like this manage to fail upwards? It's amazing.

Current VP of my org has actively blocked me from interviewing & moving up into a new team. Definitely the worst "boss" I have had. The incompetence is so blatant the rest of the sales org makes fun of him openly.
Senior Director, Enterprise Technology
2nd VP of sales I worked with. Every win was to his credit as he “guided and led the effort” every miss was the reps fault. He’d send out company wide emails announcing his wins. So obnoxious.
Regional Sales Director
