Had a performance review discussion today. I was promoted to manager in October. The partner asked how long I had been with the firm (4.5yrs), then how long I’d taken for maternity leave. He then told me it was like I’ve only been working 3.5 years, since I’d been on maternity leave twice since joining. He was saying this in a negative way, and I just can’t wrap my head around it. WTF would make him say something like that?

I like consulting, but I am more interested in improving patient outcomes. Depending on the project I am on, usually that’s not a huge driver for the project or what my role focuses on.

Anyone have suggestions?
