Re: recommendations for good "work from home" companies and positions
I'm in the same boat as you - my salary is about double my husband's and I too need to work. My employer is incredibly family friendly and work/life balance is key. I work for a company called Securian Financial Group (www.securian.com). We are based in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area. In terms of breastfeeding mothers they have lactation rooms on all the floors of my building. I'm thinking of discussing telecommuting one day per week with my manager. 6-month old DS would still go to daycare that day but it would be nice to have one less commute day each week. I believe there are a very few cases where associates can work from home full time, but generally telecommuting is reserved for people who have been with the company at least one year or longer. hth
