We're working with a company who want to know more about the impact that having children can sometimes have on parents' careers. They're interested in hearing your opinions and experiences of having a family and working.

This survey is open to all UK MNers who have at least one child and were working before they had children. It doesn't matter whether you are currently in paid work or not, we'd still love to hear from you.

Click here to complete the survey.

Everyone who completes the survey and adds their email address at the end will be entered into a prize draw where one MNer will win a £200 Love2Shop voucher.

Thanks and good luck!

argh. I don't remember putting dc's ages in - just number of dc. If I've missed it then they please could you add them in - they're 8 & 5. Thanks!

I also thought the level of work question was quite tricky to answer - the way the levels were listed (senior managerial, junior managerial, etc) made it look like it was a scale but clerical and professional were ranked together and they encompass a vast range - say from a doctor, lawyer or civil engineer at a senior level through to those doing the filing or data entry... It seems odd to want to specify between senior and junior managers and then lump these two together, and not even want to distinguish senior and junior professionals.

Do the salary questions refer to pro rata? For example I earn less now than I did before having DC, due to being part time whereas previously full time. But my full time salary has increased- I get a lower percentage of a higher amount. So I'm not sure which to tick.

Not a very good survey, if you don't work even though it states you still meet the criteria, there are no questions relating to this really.
A bit silly really.

done. interesting and more intelligently angled than most surveys we do.

Done. Rather reflective.

Done, made me actually think about my career path since having children, as its been more by luck than judgement that its been maintained as much as it has done. Also the identity questions are good ones.
