I’ve been struggling with a partner who is very hard to reach when there are items that need their sign-off asap. I have to send multiple follow-up emails and calls to get a response. Perhaps they expect me to handle things more independently, but I am a recent lateral (3rd year) and don’t want the partner to blame me for not checking with them first. Ideally, I want to take on less work from them (central staffing) and do more for other partners. Any advice/how would you handle this situation?

How have you or people you know attained a funded PhD from their company?

Is it common in the industry for licensed insurance agents to not get any commissions on a referral in which you personally write the policy? Ex: If a current client refers a prospect to our team, I would not receive commission. Additionally, if I write a policy for friends/family I would get a small incentive but it’s a fraction of the commission producers make.
Management is considering changing this going forward. However, I’m not sure how I should react if they keep things how they are now.
