Hi All! I'm new to this board and just wanted to get some opinions on my current issue...
I just returned to work after maternity leave a few weeks ago and my job is a total disaster. I manage a team of 3 and in my absence, 2 quit. I had a temp covering my position but he did not keep up with things because I came back to piles of overdo work. I'm frantically trying to catch up and recruit for the two open positions but my company has been historically slow in hiring new people and my boss is incredibly picky so I'm worried it will be months before we find replacements and in the meantime, the workload is going to be very difficult.
My question is, should I consider seeking out a new position or should I stick it out? I feel bad leaving the company since there are already so many vacancies and I also am not sure if it's a smart idea to start a new job while I'm still trying to adjust to being a new working mom. (When I start a new job, I like to devote a lot of time and focus to it, learning about the company, etc and I don't think I will be able to do that with my new role as a mom.)
Let me know what you think, any advice/opinions are appreciated! TIA!
