I’d be interested to hear how other women plan their careers in investment banking/ S&T in terms of having kids? Does everyone wait until they’re comfortable in their role (mid 30s) or has anyone chosen to have kids at 25-30 (and how that’s worked out)?

Does it make sense to jump from Strategy& to either LEK or ZS, if the ultimate goal is to end up in industry (Big Pharma)? Asked another way, does either LEK, or ZS boost exit opps into Big Pharma, more so than Strategy&, if already working on Life Sciences engagements while at Strategy&? Do folks hiring in industry even know the differences between these firms to justify hopping from one to the other for an industry exit?
