Looking to get some perspective on the following scenario:

8 YOE of experience in consulting and currently have the opportunity to take on an industry position (local to home but still remote!) at a large healthcare system. Pay and benefits are comparable to another job offer I have on the table at consulting firm different from my current. Anyone have experience or opinions on leaving consulting for industry while growing a young family and returning in the future?

Sounds like a great move considering you want to spend time with family. It’s my goal to do exactly this in a few years. Congrats!

Take it. I think many of us would like to do just that when kids come around. You can always go back to consulting - it will still be there.

I did this. Industry role was a total snooze and pace of work glacial compared to consulting. But colleagues nice , WLB and benefits great. After 3 years I went back to consulting when old boss called and my brain woke up.

Yes. Had 2 including a 6 month old. Had #3 2 yrs later while back in sr manager type level. It’s hard not gonna lie. Had FT nanny. Was able to finagle local projects or strategy w limited travel. I figured if I was going to work I wanted it to be challenging and fun/rewarding. Hospital was ok and it was a good overall learning experience. But boring, isolating and so so slow. Maybe it was where I was.

So there’s pros/cons. It won’t be a bad decision if it what you want. And as someone else said, you can go back later.
