We have a PPMD?!? News to me.

The latter, by far.

Depends on what you are trying to learn and career stage

I work everyday with both SM and PPMDs. I feel i learn from latter as there are lot of soft skills we need to pick up on, assuming one has technical skills

I’ve never met the partner on any of my cases

It’s a mix, and becomes more of a mix over time. Having someone immediately senior to you for guidance and experience is invaluable to personal and professional growth. Having peers you can lean on and learn from is critical to sanity. And staying close to junior folks is how you stay empathetic and develop leadership skills.

Hey guyss ! So I’m a freight broker for a start-up company making 50k base with a $800 bonus every month. My numbers are great , and I always hit my quotas , but I can’t help but to feel like I’m being taken advantage of. Do you guys know of any other companies that are in the same or similar industry that pays more. The benefits are more than fine but I don’t make commission and it behooves me how I make the company an extra 10-20k a week but don’t see anything off it really.
