I work in social services as a manager. It's relatively low-stress because my employer tries to treat the staff as well as the clients. I've been allowed to work from home occasionally as needed - mostly back in the days when I couldn't be sure my drive to work would be "clean." I've been allowed to flex my time, and I'm always judged by my work output and outcomes rather than how many hours I'm in the office. I typically work 9 to 3, then come home and work a couple more hours from home.
Supervising people is always going to have its stresses, but my team all know about
my challenges and are helpful (being social service types, of course). I also know that for me, it's a lot more stressful to have a boring job than one with some challenges.
