Just got a lateral hire offer for a Sr Associate role with BCG. Contract states that I can go for Consultant promo in 12 months. I'm interpreting this as, if I don't make the promo threshold in 12 months, I'd be counseled out. Is this a reasonable assumption? Or would I get a few more months of time to work on feedback? I'm nervous - should I be? :(

Have been pinged for a possible role as Director of Operations at a promising looking startup with a 50%% pay increase & equity.

Has anyone changed jobs at a similar point, or worked at a startup as a new mom, that might be able to share perspective or opinions?
