Unlikely, as long as you don't let it affect the FaceTime you get with leadership and teams in your local office. If that alone is the reason you don't get promoted, there are bigger issues at hand.

Flex travel should theoretically have zero impact to the expenses your bill to client, so as long as you are on-site as often as required and your expenses are within reason it should have no impact to your career prospects

How many of yall are able to make consistent extra income from options trading?

I left KPMG after 7 years after being passed over for Director promotion. I left to start a medical business. 3 months in, my partner and I grossed $130K in sales w/ a 60% margin. Consulting prepared us for this and I’m forever grateful for my experience. I’m honestly amazed at how well consulting skills translate to entrepreneurship. I’m sharing this to encourage anyone who’s been on the fence about starting their own thing. Go for it. Consulting will always be there if you need to fall back.
