“Cogent’s competitive advantage lies in our people... their spirit, their energy and their commitment” — Dave Schaeffer, Cogent Communications CEO
Pilots call it “unlimited ceiling”, no cloud cover, no obstructed view. We apply that same concept to the commission plan for our sales folks, “unlimited” no cap, no obstruction to getting paid for what they sell.
If you don't like having a cap placed on the commission you can earn, then you belong at Cogent. If you keep selling, you keep earning!
