Who is actually in the top 1% of their org/division/company?

Curious when it comes to comparing yourself to your peers in your org. does Bravado truly have top sales people, or just sales people?
Where are you ranked by percentile in your sales career or current position?

I've been #1 in the whole company at a previous position, as well as #1 on my team and #2 for percentage to (above) quota in an earlier organization.

Current company is too small that those percentiles just don't make sense

Yeah, I thought about that when making the poll as obviously the top seller in largest accounts would be number 1.. but you know what im getting at. Are you the best in your company at what you do or just another one?

as an AE I was always top 25% and here and there would be top 5% in a 2000 person org which isnt too bad. As a manager I have always been top 10% and been top 3 with some regularity

Zero ranking in our org. No idea. But #1 in everyone’s hearts I’d say 😍

Top 1% every year except my first year and this year. This is my first year missing a quarter ever. And yes, have been #1 multiple years for fortune 1000 companies. I don’t like to toot my own horn but I was curious about other members.

To continually hit #1 for so long, what would you say has lead to your success?

I missed this quarter, so bad time to ask.   First two quarters, right there!   Expect to be back up top for Q4 and FYE.

You bet.  I hate losing deals and having light quarters.  I'm on a ramp, though, and have exceeded 2Qs already, completely not expected.  I'm on par with the non-ramp reps.  Cannot complain.

I’ve been number 1 before, I don’t like the microscope. Happy to crush in the top few of my team at a larger org now.

Our sales team is about 20 people and we don’t even post leaderboards or anything, so I truthfully have no idea.

We have presidents club (hitting 110% of quota) but no top 1%. My quota is the collective amount of transactions that my signed clients have processed over the year, so I won’t really know where I am at, quota wise, until Dec 31. We have kind of a weird, somewhat informal setup, I know.

Keep grinding youll get there. Ferarri’s smell amazing on the inside. They shouldnt even make them convertible because it lets the smell out.
