Many big companies have good policies for working moms

Here’s a Career Builder article giving the ten best companies for working mom’s, link.

The article notes that the greatest financial gains in the workplace seem to be with young single women. Once women have children, even in marriage, they have more of the “responsibility”. The old adage that “men don’t do anything” still seems to hold.

Some of the best companies are the big accounting firms and IT firms. But accommodating parents without “burdening” the childless becomes a delicate balancing act for HR departments. By definition, life is never fair.
