- Bonus/Commissiondisputeworld – Am I a mug?
Ok troops, second login just in case.
I work in sales for a multinational. We’d been working on a large deal for several months, when my manager told me I was being reassigned to a different sector and one of my colleagues would pick up where I left off. I resisted this change but ultimately had to concede.
This was two months ago and the deal in question has just closed. I have still been working on it as the colleague in question is useless, so all others involved have been calling on me for support. So colleague has not touched it at all.
At the time I was reassigned, I asked for clarification about bonus as I had a fair idea it would close soon. I made my position clear – I expected full recognition – but never got any confirmation of what was to happen.
Now I am anticipating a fight when I ask for recognition. The bonus is significant to me, about £8k or so over the £1.5k bonus I’m currently looking at.
Anyone else been in this position? Do I have to just suck it up?
To make matters worse the colleague (who now stands to cash in) has been so bad they are trying to get me back into the sector I was reassigned away from in the first place. It’s stressing me out big time.Posted 3 years ago
Unless i missed something it founds really obvious:
“Give me the comp I deserve and I’ll come back. Don’t, and keep the donkey or pay recruitment fees”
Put politely of course.
One thing to ask why are you anticipating a fight? Perhaps go easy on yourself any reduce anxiety by not assuming the worst.Posted 3 years ago
I didn’t say walk.
The Implication is your working elsewhere. So you say “I’d love to come back, thanks. But after I’ve been paid the comp ive earned for the job I’ve been doing, otherwise I’m happy where I am…”
You’re not leaving a job, your just laying down a precedent for your return. Oh and next time get it in writing….Posted 3 years ago
