jtmitch says:Perhaps that's also possible for software techies. Any hints or success stories out there from those who have successfully negotiated their way from full-time to part-time jobs while working for fairly traditional organizations?When I started my current job 6 years ago I was a consultant, and not sure about the position long term. I told them when I started that I could only work 30 hours a week. My thinking at the time was that this would allow me to deal with my kids and to job hunt if the position turned out not to be right for me. I'm now a permanent but still part time employee. (One of only two in the company.) I get vacation, holidays, overtime if I work more than 8 hours a day (rare) or more than 40 a week (happens maybe twice a year), 401K but no insurance.In my opinion working 30 hours a week has been a sanity saver. I doubt if I would still be here if I was a "regular" empoyee.Leana
