Your being pregnant should have no influence on your promotion whatsoever. I was promoted while on mat leave with my first and once about a month prior to the birth of my second. If you believe you are passed up because you pregnant, that’s a convo with your boss and HR

My co-worker got promoted from AD to Sr AD while pregnant with her second. She’d been talking with our CD about it since the year before, so it was well in the works on an admin level before she even got pregnant. Anyway, the pregnancy wasn’t even a factor...she got promoted as planned when 5 mo pregnant. She’d been with the company 7 years. Two years before was her first maternity leave.

Congrats! maternity leave is only 3 months usually...a blip compared to your overall tenure there if you’ve been there long enough to get a promotion and plan to stay on a while (I assume). I would just approach the whole thing disregarding the pregnancy

What level are you? Is this your first?

My president was worried I wasn’t going to return so before I left I assured him repeatedly I was but that I was expecting some changes and I laid the conversational ground work for a promotion and raise when I returned. I just got back and immediately visited the topic. They’re on board so I’m waiting till the end of the month to see what happens!

Yes, was promoted both times I was pregnant. I felt like it was my companys way of trying to make sure I came back. At least maybe the second time since the first time I quit during my leave but ultimately accepted their counter offer and stayed.

We just promoted an ACD to CD at 32 weeks. It was the elephant in the room and came up in jokes and comments In the public acknowledgement of it during an all staff meeting. But she was a champ and spent her 6+ weeks putting a plan in place for the group and on boarded coverage with a lot of clear direction.

Hi all! I’m doing some research on parental leave policies to make a case to improve ours. How many weeks does your policy offer? Does it differ between “primary” and “secondary” caregiver? Birth vs other means of growing your family? I’m particularly interested in independent shops, but would love to hear from folks at the network agencies as well. It you could comment with your agency name, I’d be super grateful. Thank you thank you! ❤️
