When I worked in public accounting, I worked 60-70 hours a week during busy season and would never think about taking flex-time or choosing to work less to raise my children. In the 80’s and late 90’s, women were afraid that if they took time to raise their children, they would not be promoted.
Well, there is a new day. In a New York Time article, the accounting industry is heralded for leading the corporate world in using flex-time as a tool to keep employees, especially women who want raise their children and work. I am so glad to read that women have made partner while working a 35-hour week. This was unheard of when I was a younger women. Flex-time makes public accounting a very logical career choice for individuals planning to have their work/family cake and eating it too!!
