For those of us who don’t think we’ll be shooting for PPMD, what level SM do you think is the ideal jumping off point into a different job? What types of jobs and salary increase would you expect? I’ve never really looked for jobs so not sure what the market looks like for us but don’t think I’ll be here for the long haul

If you know you don’t want to stay for PPMD I would leave sooner rather than later. The longer you stay as SM the more likely you will have to take a pay cut in base (bonus will likely get you more but base will be lower) and it’s harder to compete with other applicants because companies are looking for applicants with both public and private experience. I’d leave by SM2/3 year if you already know. If you decide later, you’ll still get a good job, it will just take longer but you could always ask partners to help.
