Why do you treat me so differently after I came back from maternity leave?

Why are my quick win features you once praised, suddenly examples of areas we are lacking in execution?
Why are ideas I previously proposed, suddenly being attributed to being the brain child of another?
Why suddenly when I'm doing my job, but unable to go 150%, am I not valued anymore?
Why do you suddenly cut me off in meetings or table my questions for a later that never comes?

Why wasn't it like this before?

This sounds like you might have a lawsuit. I hope you have a swift resolution to another role or a company---as it sounds you are not suddenly undervalued and being treated terribly after taking family leave.

Quick to go on one side.

It could be insecurity.

This isn’t normal. A correct company would provide all the more praise, comfort, and support after coming back from mat leave. I would recommend reassessing where you work.

I applied for a job based on the job description and now have an interview with the Recruiter in the next couple of days. In preparation for the interview I did some research and have serious concerns about the company. E.g., most of the most recent Glassdoor reviews describe the company as a "sinking ship" with poor benefits and poor leadership.

How would you approach this situation? Would you mention the bad reviews to the recruiter? Cancel? Continue and see what happens?
