Are you a mom looking for work? This article suggests the 100 best companies to work for, benefits wise, for working moms. The article is based on a study done by the Mazgazine Working Mother.
Nontraditional benefits that are relatively rare in the broader universe of employers is common among companies making the list, according to the magazine. For example, 97 percent of the companies on the 100 best list offer compressed workweeks and job-sharing opportuities, while only 34 percent of companies nationwide offer the compressed week and only 17 percent offer job sharing.
The magazine does rank companies within the top 10 or top 100 companies lists. Its new top 10 list has six companies returning from last year's winners: drugmakers Bristol-Myers Squibb and Eli Lilly &Co., computer maker IBM, financial services firms Prudential Financial Inc. and Wachovia Corp., and household products maker S.C. Johnson & Son.
New to the top 10 list are Johnson & Johnson, J.P. Morgan Chase, PricewaterhouseCoopers and Discovery Communications.
