I am a 29 year old successful career professional. My work gets done and I have no one openly questioning my dedication to the company. I run process improvement projects and have no direct reports.
My direct supervisor has no issues with me working either 7-4 or even 6-3.
I like to get in early and out early because I have two little ones and stay at home wife. I like to be active now that they have many activities and I like to get home to give my wife a break.
When the kids get older and more independent, I foresee myself advancing professionally and ending up with an 8-5 type of schedule with much more flexibility.
My concern is that for the next few years senior management will not view me positively because I am not available for the 4pm meetings and when they walk by my space later in the day they will notice I am not there.
Should I be worried that my schedule is hurting my promotability? Do senior executives notice these things? If they do, do they understand and accept this type of schedule?
