I'm a Marketing Manager who took a step back (in title and pay) to get expand my experience in my desired industry. I currently report to the Director of Marketing and was told I'm now going to report to the Senior Marketing Manager, who was recently promoted from Manager. I was taken aback as I feel like this somewhat stunts my growth and this person has less experience than me. I'm all for reporting to a peer if I can learn from them.
Thoughts on this? Do I suck it up, or is this a signal to begin looking?
