I have been working as a Medical Representative (MR) for 10 years, and in that role I work with both hospitals and private practices. I currently work reduced hours, a system under which you can choose to work 6 hours between 8am and 8pm. I review my schedule for the day and then decide what hours to work-usually that's 10am to 4pm.
On days when I start work at 8am I'm normally finished by 2pm, so I can pick up my 20-month-old daughter early, play with her in our local park, go grocery shopping, and cook dinner. Otsuka is an easy place for me to work as I can enjoy a good work-life balance, as long as I coordinate my schedule with my clients.
The thing that has changed since I became a mom is that my day can suddenly be completely turned around if, for example, my daughter has a fever, so I've started to make sure to do things in advance that I would previously have left till later. I also prioritize fixing my schedule with my clients to ensure that I can do everything required in the time available.
