Asking this question here for a reason. In our culture and set up, a majority of the time is spent in cooking. We usually don’t eat microwave meals. I want to understand how Indian families cope up with all the traveling associates with consulting. Does the mother or father usually stay at home or be in a “light” job?

Yes you are right.. people who generally do more than 5 days a week cooking at home have one parent with light or no other “professional” job. Having said that being homemaker should be the highest paid job in world considering the work is almost 24/7.

Need counsel: Left advertising to go client side last year. Working at a huge company isn’t for me long-term but the money is great, I have more balance and actually raised my kids this year. I have the opportunity to be a c-suite leader at a very small agency on the rise. Super confused. Money will be less, long-term opportunity will be more. Also thinking about having another kid soonish.

Real talk, tho. Would you be willing to make less if you could do interesting accounting work, be on a team of people you respect, and your hours were capped at 50 even during the busiest times? I’ve worked with countless professionals who find their salary has a diminishing return once it hits a certain threshold. It’s like there is an inverse relationship to happiness.
