We recently lost a sales manager to workforce reductions - he blew his annual target out of the water on one large deal (I think it was $25 million per year or thereabouts) and he is going to have to fight to get the $75K commission that comes with it. Big money can change hands, but you've got to always be working if you want the top honors.
