The Dangled Carrot

Anyone else's quota increasing this coming quarter because you just CRUSHED it last quarter? Not so much of an incentive as it feels like the goal post was just shifted...anyone?

It hasn't happened to me quarter over quarter, but I did see a sizable increase year over year, paired with a territory that was cut in half, and no change to marketing support or the product. No good deed goes unpunished in sales.

Our quota went up an the beginning of the year. They also only gave us a quota for H1. So... ๐Ÿ‘€ย

My quota was increased 25% after I crushed it for 2 quarters in a row. Isn't too bad. But if this happens a couple more times then, I'm having my OG quota doubled within a fricking year. ๐Ÿ˜•

The compensation should increase with the target if it does, but that being said -- I have never been a believer in changing the goal post based on performance (positive or negative)ย

Call me what you want, just sign the damn contract
Time to leverage your crushed quota into a new position at a new company paying more money.
