Let us guide you along week-by-week!)
I'm an engineer and a project manager at a corporate lab/office for a manufacturing company. I work 4 days / week (80%).
Last year I worked 3 days/week M-W (60%), but it was stressful trying to always get everything done by Wednesday and then switch to "toddler time" for the other 4 days of the "weekend" so I changed to Mon-Thurs work schedule and its going better now.
I proposed the 3d week to my boss while I was on mat leave with LO#2 last April and after a few weeks of consideration they agreed to it, with the option to review annually. We don't regularly have part time employees at my company and its not common in my professional field.
I'm a nuclear medicine technologist
DS2 - Oct 2010 (my VBAC baby!)
I'm a project manager for an environmental consulting firm. I worked for the firm for 3 years before going part time, and have been part time for 6.
In general my days in the office are Monday, Tuesday, Thursday. But since consulting can be very hot or cold there are some weeks when I have to work from home also. Such as this week when I put in 50 hours on my "part time" schedule. Luckily I'm paid hourly though so I'm compensated if I work extra hours.
I used to be the Director of Human Resources at a healthcare org after having my LO decided to consult and have being doing so for the last few weeks. its perfect for me right now.
Funny having graduated with my Masters last May 5 mos pregnant I could not envision I would have resigned, I mean I was ready to be a VP... But I love my LO and he will only be a baby for so long. Days are tough but I am enjoying every minute of him
