I did this when I came to this employer almost 2 yrs ago. The money was better and there was much more opportunity for growth. It was the best career decision I could have made. I have been promoted twice already and am currently training for another promotion. Good luck with whatever you decide!

Most people are now learning that career paths are often not vertical in today’s world. Career moves are now like a jungle gym. (Not my original quote but it resonated with me.) I’ve taken lower roles for same pay to get experience that enabled me for the future.

I did this coming to my current job. Better pay, better benefits, & better culture so I’m fine with it. Job is a cake walk so I look like a rock star & my boss is fighting for me to get a promotion on the next round.

I’m just wondering if you want to jump again if it would hurt you when your resume looks like you’re going backward?

If your resume is based on title alone, you’re doing it wrong.

Can you use more ambiguous alternative on the resume? For example, Specialist can convey IC roles ranging from experienced analyst to chief economist.

I’m working with the typical Analyst/Associate title

Wrapping up maternity leave and negotiating start and end times with the nanny. What time do your nannies come over and how late do they stay? Both husband and I are consultants and our hours are so unpredictable. Nanny can come 8 hours a day. We are thinking 9-5 and then based on our day, one of us takes care of the baby for another two hours and do the bath/bed time around 7ish.
