Hi, I am a mother of two young kids and was previously working in consulting with one of the Big 4 (lots of change management work then). I have been slowly working my way to getting more experience in strategy consulting, but had to halt plans due to birth of my second kid a year ago. Since then, I have been a stay home mom.
As I have two young kids and not much help in the way of parents or caregivers, I am thinking that I would have to put my dreams of consulting on hold for now. My question is - are there roles within consulting firms that are more "forgiving" and "lifestyle-friendly" for working moms, more lifestyle-friendly consulting firms, or are there types of work that I should be looking for outside of the consulting industry that might put me in good stead with relevant experience to re-enter management consulting when I do have more time to focus on my career?
