Are You a Million Dollar Man?

At a previous engagement, there was a tradition of recognizing those employees who were top performers. One strange milestone was the award of 'million dollar man', to engineers who had actual billings over 1 million dollars, and to salespeople who had sold over 1 million since joining the firm. Reaching this level was the equivalent of being a made man in a crime syndicate.

i'm sure quite a few members have reached this status many times over, but how long did take? Accuracy not required.

and do you have any similar award/recognition where you work today, for the 'big dogs'?
