Wondering if anyone started a family at the same time as starting MBB and how it turned out. I’m off to b-school in a month and considering MBB afterward, but that’ll be the same time that my wife and I want to have our first kid. This is a pivotal moment in my career but I don’t necessarily want to abandon my wife with a newborn for four days per week...
In one hand, Consulting is great for the family, you can be home at hours others can't to be part of your kid's daily life (breakfast, school pick up, bath time, etc.) in the other hand, consulting is hard, when your home you are there, but often pulled away to do night work, presentations, and SOWs. Client work needs to get done (at the same time my son is my number one client) Any Dad's out there who have some good guiding principles they have found useful to strike the balance (knowing some days things are just not balanced)?

No, typically not. You may get on a project that lets you get home a little earlier thurs or maybe not travel one week per couple months, but the model is a 3-4-5 travel schedule and that’s hard to avoid. It’s super challenging as a new dad, straight up. Tho paternity leave is great!

Also, make sure that you can take advantage of the paternity leave. Some places (like EY) you have to be here for at least a year
