I have told my children that "Family comes first, but not always." Sometimes work intrudes on the evenings and weekends and that's just the way it is.

I am pleased to hear that everyone is OK, as that is what really matters.

I also like that your company is one that actually follows through on the idea of understanding we all have thing pop up. Most companies talk the talk, but forget how to walk as soon as the shoe is on the other foot. They are happy to allow us to put in extra time without pay, but the minute we need something, well, uh, you see, um...

I hear ya, that's called living in the REAL world.

Just as with any relationship, the true colors of an employer will show in a crisis.

It all comes down to how much an employer values someone as an employee and to what lengths the employer is willing to go to accommodate the employee in times of need.

Also, it is a question of trust: if, over a long period of time the employee has shown dedication, diligence, skill etc., then that should count for something in family emergencies. Otherwise, it is time to start "looking" elsewhere.

An inflexible employer is bound to lose valuable workers with time, as they move on to better opportunities. As a DBA I know that "good" people in my field are in short supply and the demand for skilled database professionals will only increase with time.

So, even though we depend on the job to earn a living, we have something very valuable to sell, and may the best employer win!
