I’ve never really taken sick days in my entire consulting career, about 2 years in. I do not want to, and I just don’t get sick often. But I’m wondering if this is something that is valued by upper management when evaluating their talent? Any thoughts from leaders and managers in consulting? I’ll continue to be the same regardless but I’ve been curious is this is a strength.
