What are your thoughts on taking an offer that would put you in a new location, making more money and being in a healthier work environment, but with a title change? (assistant manager to lead supervisor)

Would the title change look like a step back in my career? Thanks.

Title is low on my priority list. Location, pay, culture/WLB outweigh it. Also, your new title doesn’t really give “demotion” vibes. I think you’ve got a great offer on the table.


I literally did this (so obviously in support)!

While "on paper" it looks like a step down from a team/program manager role, my new/current employer obviously knows that it means, and I fully intend to work my way back up (with a better price point too!), so it would be moot at the end of the day.

If I decide to eventually move on, it's an easily explained situation to a potential employer. In my case, I joined a brand new service line (think startup) where they obviously can't hire a ton of employees at once with high titles and need people who can help build everything while also doing the day to day until we're big enough to transition into team structure.


You have no idea whether that work environment will be healthy at all.

Siegfried Group -
I had an initial call with a recruiter and got turned down about 6-7 months ago. I was having a really bad day (just found out a relative had passed, more than normal work stress, ect) and just really had a tough time gathering my thoughts. I honestly should have rescheduled the call but I just didn’t really want to have to push it out and coordinate schedules again. Any chance I can get a second look? The career path aligns with my interests and my background is a great fit.

Personal lines agents that work from supplied leads, have you guys noticed a huge slow down in lead quantity this year over last? I am writing almost half the business that I was this time last year, I’m starting to get worried about lay offs at my job if this continues. Usually the summer time is very busy for us.. you’d think with inflation more people would be looking at places to save some money, thus driving more quotes in.
