Seeking advice - have 2 competing offers. First opportunity is in consulting (ACN) and the other is in industry with similar responsibilities as consulting. Industry opp company is a startup. I’ll have to take a cut of $13k in base + bonus + 401k match in industry vs consulting offer. Industry opp is at a Director level for strategy & operations and involves client management. Would really appreciate your input. Thanks!

Thinking of going for Director this year but also going on Maternity Leave in November for 5 months. Terrible timing I know. BUT I've already met Director sales goals and utilization will be avg for manager. I'm at the top level for Manager so can't progress any further unless I go for promotion.... Thoughts on going for it? Nervous about having a new baby and being a new Director (if I get it).
