I have a good manager but I've recently realized I was given incorrect information around compensation and competition during the interview process. I used this information to make a decision between a few different companies. I take full responsibility for myself always and have learned from this experience to do a better job collecting *accurate* data during an interview.
I don't blame my manager for misinforming me around competition because he was new at the time, but I don't understand why the other tenured manager I interviewed with from a different team told me the same thing. I was told there's only one competitor but what I've learned is that couldn't be any farther from the truth - the EHR/ Medical Billing space is insanely competitive.
I was deceived on earning potential because during the interview my manager shared one of the current rep's monthly checks and it was a lot of money. What I was not told though was that the money was from a one time spiff. But it was framed like if I hit 200% of quota I'd make that every month too.
I know 'managing up' is important and I want to be good at 'managing up' but what do I do in this situation? I've been looking at joining other companies, but I also feel bad about leaving a role only 6 months in.
