Excited to attend your task. I am a mom of 4 year old. A manager I worked with before adviced me to not set boundaries if I am looking for growth. I eventually moved on from his team. But the words stay and haunt me. Is it true? Am I trading growth off for work life balance? I understand it's hard to have both in some teams with managers like him. How can I filter out such teams during interview? I recently asked about work life balance in an informational interview with another company's manager. There was a short pause followed by a brief answer. I did not hear back from him in spite of everything else going well.
