Hi! I’m starting at a consulting Big4 firm in a few months. Just after a month of joining, I have to travel internationally to visit my home country for family reasons. Will this affect my onboarding or getting staffed on my first project? Or even my general reputation?

Thanks!

Ask your manager now. They should be able to provide you with more guidance and it’s inevitable that you’ll have to ask them anyway
