Is consulting as advertised when it comes to career acceleration? Personally, I am starting to doubt it. It feels like the skill sets are a bit dated and the world has moved on. Also, we get put on so many random engagements it’s hard to build tangible skills. I am talking big 4, MBB is a different game.

Moms, help me out here. I’m a Big 4 consulting M and FTM who planned to work up to my due date, 4/1. Baby is breech and big, so scheduling a C-section at 39 weeks (1 week early). My doc would like me to stop working Fri, 3/18, but I feel like I should work next Mon/Tue also to help my team wrap up. Thoughts? Ultimately I think I need to focus on baby but I’m feeling so guilty about this short notice. Then I reason that if I went into labor spontaneously, it could happen at any time. 🥴
