How old is your baby? Did the new role involve certain challenges for which you have to put in extra time? How far is it from your location? Check the work life balance of this company? Etc etc before reaching to an decision

The new company is a big 4 - work from home role. He is 8 months old and in daycare full time. Work/life same difference. Really just building that new network/starting from scratch at a new firm.

How demanding will your new role be? A demanding job can make or break my attitude when I’m on your own time which is really ‘mom time.’

Definitely demanding but in the same way my job is now. Same flexibility too!
