Do you think consulting a good place to have a first/second child? Some pros I gathered include decent maternity leave policies and the ability to come back into the same job because we are project based. Industry (tech) would have better WLB and insurance, but I heard in most cases your job will have changed when you come back from leave.

This is not a yes or a no question. Depends on you and your expectations and how your team supports you.

Worked very well for me and many women I know. Didn’t work well for others.

Hi from the UK

I recently accepted a new position in a start-up and received the contract today.

The offer letter mentioned 'enhanced' maternity pay but the contract mentions 'statutory'

I'm not planning on using this benefit anytime soon but that if I need to I won't be messed about.

Any of you UK based would be able to let me know the amount of details they have within this section of their contract? I'm keen to go back to ask further details. Not sure what the norm is?

Thank you!

Oh, we also have 2 young children (3.5 and 13 months), who are very used to having me at their disposal. Any advice on how to navigate starting this new gig? Also, it’s client side... my first time outside of an agency

After 3 years of dealing with the worst firm I've ever had the displeasure of working for, I finally landed my dream gig at a small specialty firm. The people at the new firm are all SMEs featured in and contributors to the most notable business publications in the world, less than 100 employees, better benefits, unlimimted PTO, doubled my pay and landed a senior role.

Keep looking for what you want and deserve. I'm happy to be forging a better path away from what I've had to endure.
