Great article about pay ranges. In Sales you may have a base of $1 but an OTE of $1,000,000...so what?!
IMO - you need to figure out the value you are bringing to your employer and negotiate from there.
"On Target Earnings" is what they expect to pay you IF you hit quota. How attainable is that quota? Is the widget you're selling even viable? If you have a base of $1 and a widget which doesn't sell - you just made a whole dollar. Probably less though since you won't be there long enough to collect.
Just something to think about when a company flashes you a fancy OTE when you current OTE looks so plain.
