Examines the desirability of 21 different career development opportunities for managerial and professional women. Data were collected from 245 women in early career stages using questionnaires. There was considerable variety in their desired developmental opportunities; women with family responsibilities were less desirous of career development activities and geographic moves and more desirous of flexible working hours and working fewer hours; managerial and professional women desirous of flexible work hours or working fewer hours reported less work satisfaction and poorer psychological wellbeing. Offers implications for organizations and managerial women (and men).
