At a company where you really need to “build your platform” (e.g., a big client) to get elected into the partnership. Have had several kids in the past few years and every time it sets me way back. I come back from mat leave and essentially whatever spot I had is gone. I know it’s “my choice” to have those kids but it’s frustrating that my company claims to want to support women/moms but I am essentially penalized for having kids. Am I wrong to feel frustrated by this? Any advice?

It’s really frustrating when you get staffed on a project for your “industry expertise”, yet the manager with 0 industry experience, continues to ignore your suggestions.

How do you handle these situations without coming across as combative? There is always rework and my original suggestions are eventually considered after several deliverable reviews & revisions.

I’ve built a good rapport with the client and sometimes I just want to tell them of the situation 😔
