“Work-life balance was a main consideration for me when I was looking for a role. Being able to work remotely, set my schedule, and have flexible working hours has been huge in being able to be there for my kids and make sure they’re taken care of. I’m also able to focus on work because I’m not stressed about having to strictly be at a desk from eight to five. I’ve appreciated that kind of emphasis, where I feel like we’re not just told that we can take time off, but leadership is showing us that we should take the time we’re given. We have unlimited PTO, so please go and take care of your family and yourself. Because you’re going to bring your best self to work when you know you’ve been practicing self-care and have some balance.”
