Hello folks,
I have two kids that are under 3 and I'm thinking a career change. Would prefer something that pays well but still have a good WLB, any suggestion? Google? Walmart lab?

    Microsoft is known for great WLB, awesome benefits for families. Depends on the team, of course (Azure may be hectic than Windows).

    LinkedIn wlb is great! Two weeks mandatory shutdown + 10 federal holidays + discretionary time off + daycare fund through perkup

    OCI at Oracle isn’t bad in the WLB department. Not sure how secure it will be long term, but the pay is good and you aren’t expected to work crazy hours. Most teams will want you in Seattle though.

    Walmart but shoot for Bentonville based. Cheap cost of living combined with west coast pay trends let’s you pay for amenities that make life easy.

    1200 a month mortgage gets you a spacious house. Day care at 150-200 a week has your kid at a place with a trained nurse on staff. House cleaning services are pretty plentiful out here if paying cash.

    Yeah it’s living in a fly over state but money makes it easy to deal.

    Cisco is flexible and has two on-site daycares in San Jose. I regularly hear children in WebEx calls and people bring their older kids to the office on spring break and such.
