I’m glad to see Microsoft on the list, though I’m not sure what on-site daycare they’re referring to. There’s one close by that takes only MSFT kids, but it’s not very big and it’s definitely not on site.

If all goes well, I’ll be working part time soon, and I’m not even a mom :) MSFT is very cool about flextime, and working from home. Woo hoo!
