I’ll have a baby soon and rather work a bit less.
Also if you work part time, how’s your experience?

    The one that you've been currently working at for awhile, have built up a positive reputation for and are willing to be flexible in order to keep you.

    This can be one of the advantages of staying at an employer for awhile if you want to ask for non-standard treatment they know you and your work and are more willing to grant it to keep you.

      Yup. This was precisely how I've managed part time work. I had to persuade a lot of people and when I decided to switch teams anyone who I'd never worked with was reluctant, while every manager who had worked with me in the past was happy to work with me again regardless of my being part-time. They were willing to do it for me because if the reputation I'd built, not because they were actually supportive of flexiblity.

      However, Amazon has a part-time program where all engineers and managers on the team work part-time, the teams that do this are fairly limited and I've heard the work isn't very exciting but I think that are available at any location.

    Do companies actually do this outside of freelance?

      Yes they do. Amazon has this policy and also there are at least 2 teams at Amazon that I know, where the whole team (including the manager) work part time.
