Advice desperately needed. I've been at my agency for 6 years and I have a one year old child. Work is going well since I returned 6 months ago after maternity leave, my boss likes me, has given me more responsibility and praises my work but he's basically told me I won't be promoted because the 2 CD slots above me are both filled. Staying would be comfortable and easy with the little one especially but I feel I'm never going to grow and progress if I don't move up so I feel I have no choice but to look elsewhere. What would you do?
