I cannot tell you the number of comments I have gotten about how my new job will be "better for my family" or "a better work/life balance." Yes, hopefully it will be. But also, it's an amazing opportunity that will likely further my career far more than being a non-equity partner would. (I will never make equity partner at my firm and even non-equity is questionable.) Why is it so hard to understand that a woman with a child might leave for a better career opportunity and not just because the hours are better? I have said nothing to suggest otherwise. And by title alone, most people would consider this a step up not back.
