Executive Compensation Plan Template

Why use this template?

I've had great executive compensation plans where I made a lot of money.

And I've had terrible comp plans where I made very little money.

I want you to negotiate a great compensation plan for your next role.

It's possible, if you're just transitioning into your first executive role as the VP of Sales or VP of Marketing, you may not have heard of some of the key terminology in your compensation plan.

This template is intended to educate you on what each term means, and also provide incentive plan industry benchmarks for B2B SaaS, sales and marketing executives.  

That way, you can compare your current offer to what is more or less common today.
