January 1970

I worked as a GBS management consultant (100% travel) for four years. I was frequently the only woman on my team and the only working mother. Departments are highly siloed and networking opportunities limited. Maternity leave was a mess. My manager had no idea how to go about the paperwork and assuming everything was filled correctly, the processing was a nightmare. I lost my healthcare coverage twice while on leave - once while on paid leave, and again while on unpaid leave. HR also missed two months (8 weeks or 4 paychecks) of my payroll after I returned to work. I was on the phone sorting things out with insurance, hospitals, and the IBM employee hotline every week for the first six months of giving birth. It was an administrative nightmare on top of all the normal stress for new moms, working parents, and consulting professionals.

I was laid-off when my daughter was 18 months old. When I returned to work after maternity leave, I was diagnosed with Post partum depression and anxiety. I received zero support from the company - all that matter was my utilization numbers.
