A shame to see the gnocchi not getting its due praise!

Get the pizza and the gnocchi with meat or red sauce. Don't miss the gnocchi. It's one of the best dishes in New York. Louis is a good guy. Be nice to him and he'll be nice back... in a decidedly Brooklyn fashion. No fake chipperness. Just a familial vibe and a heavy pour on your J&B.

Fog Creek ditched commission-based compensation for salespeople a year ago and we've never been more productive.

Very good post. As a technology sales person tied to a commission structure, I have to say I agree with much of it, most especially when it's the last few weeks of the quarter and you're say 2 or 3% under quota. You immediately downshift on bigger but longer term opportunities to focus on squeezing your current accounts for that last 100K of the quarter. Mind you, that also stems from the meeting-market-quarterly-expectations disease that plagues public companies. But it's also in no small part due to the fact that I am rewarded financially for hitting quota that quarter more than I am for doing the best long term job for the company.
