    flexible hours–being able to work 6 hours one day and 10 hours another day, as long as it all gets done. Essential! (37/F)

    family friendliness

    I second the flexible hours- that is key! As much electronic communications, paychecks as possible…multi-tasking is a good thing and I am more efficient when i’m busy. 24/F

  4. A home (I am a WAHM) where everyone picks up their socks. 🙂

    Respect (33/F)

    Working for myself!

  7. Passion for the work…and lunch out with the gang on a regular basis. 33/F

    Passion, flexiblity, time and money freedom; I want it all for me and for other career women. It can happen from home. Check it out for yourself at my website. Best wishes.

    Flexible hours definitely! Why if we work faster and more efficiently than others, should we be forced to stay in the office staring at a screen until 9pm, when in fact efficiency and performance is what really counts? why should there still be such a taboo to leave early?
    Secondly, communication between senior management and staff is key. There shouldn’t be an “us” versus “them” attitude. when you realise that staff are ganging up against you and senior execs are clicqued together – there are some issues to be solved.
