Hi there, just looking to see if anyone out there has approached their employer about changing their work arrangement from full-time to part-time, what approach you took, would like to hear what types of arrangements exist out there. I've put the request in to my employer, but typical big company, nobody wants to be the decision-maker, so I'm getting tossed around. It's been almost 9 months since I first requested it, so 've reached the point where I need to set a milestone date to make a decision as to whether I stay and put up with the imbalance and exhaustion in my life, or just quit. I am struggling so much with missing out on my 2-year-old daugter's daily developments, but am also so anxious about losing the security of a full-time, great paycheque/bonus (and my husband is self-employed, so I am the primary breadwinner right now) and what that will mean to my daughter's future... There are not a lot of corporate, part-time opportunities to be had out there, though.
Sorry for blabbing on... Any feedback/conversation is welcome, but no advertising for work-at-home businesses, please.
