I'm through to last round of an extremely cool job opp. Salary at best will be lateral but title bump and extremely cool set of responsibilities. However will only likely start in Jan due to needing to wait for bonus and security clearance check. Have baby coming end of may. Per my understanding this means I won't even get statutory pay? What should I do? Or should I just view this as missing 2 weeks of £150 (ie unpaid leave) and whatever paid paternity leave benefit org has (likely 2 weeks)

I was told that once I trained my replacement I would see a promotion. - Everything coming from the partner level. Here I stand now, no better off than I was two years ago.

It seems like both on here and TLS there has been a lot of discussion lately of non-legal exit ops with a biglaw corporate background, and especially from a v10. Most of the discussion is centered on finance and investing roles in NYC. The conclusion is typically that it is very difficult but doable with the right background and luck. I’m curious if anyone has been able to lateral from a v10 to a non legal role in a smaller market where their experience stands out more than in NYC?
