Here, here. This was also me.My end goal was always flight, so I knew I had to build a good reputation and not get sucked into the drama that comes with putting a bunch of type A personalities together.
OP, try this. You can replace our end goal/s with whatever yours is, or will be. It’s a lot easier said than done.
Pay-wise I agree, you’re worth (or should be) what you bring to the table. I’m certain I make less than some of my co-workers still, yet they gripe infinitely more. So yeh...there’s that.
