I wonder how really flexible the schedule is in industry - heard that you have to be chained to your desk so it's not like you can leave earlier or choose to be remote one day because you need to take kids to the doctor. Plus if you need to commute then you are not really seeing the kids that much more. Is it the answer here "less traveling and more local clients"?
