So this is the opposite problem that a lot of people seem to have when finding an employer. I've worked for three employers in the past who advertised themselves as "child friendly" or "family friendly", and would either allow employees to bring their children into the office or take extra time off because of their children without using the sick leave anyone else has to (for example, leaving early to pick up their children without making up the difference and making other employees pick up the slack).
I'm worried that if I ask about that kind of benefit, a company that doesn't provide them may feel I'm less of a cultural fit if they assume that I'm looking for them
When applying, I typically had no reservations about "family friendly" employers, even though I won't ever be using those benefits. The distractions and unequal workload have been a pattern I've noticed, however, and would like to avoid in future employers. That said, companies are unlikely to advertise that they won't be giving extra benefits to parents or allowing their children in the workplace.
Except for assuming a workplace that doesn't advertise themselves this way is more in line with my desires, which seems unreliable, is there any good indication I can use?
