I'm posting this for a friend of mine, Roberta, who's not on the Net. She works
as a marketing communications writer for a major health insurance
company in the Midwest. She's worked full-time for about 8 years and
believes she has the respect of her mgmt regarding her value, tenure,
product knowledge, etc.

Now she wants to negotiate with her company part-time hours (no more than 24
hrs/wk). And she wants to maintain her professional pay scale. (In other
words, she doesn't want them to say, "Sure, work 24 hrs/wk for $8/hr.")

She'd also like to keep her health benefits but
she doesn't mind if she loses her other benefits (e.g., life insurance,
401K plan, etc.).

She'd like to stay with the company (vs. being an independent) because
she wants to work part-time while her son is small and then go back to
full-time once he enters school. By staying with the company she believes
she'll retain what she's worked hard to achieve (e.g, product and company
knowledge, tenure, etc.) even though she's part-time for a few years.

Has anyone out there done this and have some advise for her? Thanks, in
advance, for your help.
