As you know, I have decided that upon the end of my designated maternity leave period I will not be returning to my position at Citibranch. There are two reasons for this and I would like to list them here.
To start, I recently learned that the position I held has been filled and the branch has no interest in relocating that individual. That means relocating me, either to a lower position or to another branch. I cannot say either prospect interests me. The location is perfect, only 15 minutes from my apartment, providing a convenient commute, especially in case of emergency. I have investigated and the nearest Citibranch after yours is a 45 minute drive and a longer public commute.
The second reason is pure maternal. My baby is only three months old and I cannot bring myself to part with her at this time. My husband and I have agreed if I did choose to stay home a little longer, we would find a way to make ends meet. And after hearing about my being relocated upon my return, it was easy to make the decision that left me home with my newborn.
I want everyone at Citibranch to know it was a pleasure and I wish you all the best.
