NEW YORK, Oct. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Half of all U.S. workers are women, and nearly four out of 10 households include a working mother, according to AmericanProgress.org. Women have always strived for work-life balance, but as most of us know, this is easier said than done. And while men have begun to take on more child care and household-related responsibilities, it's no secret that women still do most of the work. Additionally, while educated, ambitious women acknowledge the wisdom of being able to "lean in"-take on more responsibility and climb higher on the corporate ladder-finding the right family-friendly company to work for, among the relative few that truly "get it," can add to the stress.
For a well-educated professional woman, being a working mother with a full-time career can lead to feelings of guilt and stress because of the divided attention she has to give her family. And while fathers would provide more help if their jobs permitted-which they often do not-the real key for a woman who wants to succeed in her professional life while finding the right balance between profession and parenthood may be to seek out the most understanding, family-friendly company.
One such company that has instituted powerful and popular family-oriented policies is Andrew Garrett, Inc., a wealth management and investment advisory firm headquartered in Manhattan. The highly respected company has a total of 25 locations and a network of investment advisors serving clients throughout the world. As he now actively recruits to add to his team-and is especially eager for female registered investment advisors-CEO Drew Sycoff says, "We want our people to be both healthy and happy. Unquestionably, people who are happy at home are happier at work. So here we have no 20-hour days. We also understand not wanting to miss a school play, parent-teacher conference or soccer game, or needing to be with a sick child. At Andrew Garrett we make it possible for women to do exceptionally well while remaining active parents. We have worked hard to give our employees a great place to work, and we're looking for more men and women to join us who share our philosophy."
Eve Tahmincioglu, Philadelphia-based career columnist at Careerdiva.net and author of From the Sandbox to the Corner Office, says, "If working mothers want to reshape the workplace, then we're going to have to stand up and ask for changes. If you come to realize that your current position is just not compatible with motherhood, start searching for jobs at more family-friendly companies."
In addition to family flexibility, other benefits that Andrew Garrett, Inc. offers to its registered investment advisors include a low-stress atmosphere where they can freely work on their own ideas, with "the best back-office support in the industry," and participation in the company's vetted deals.
