Abstract: Although the number of traditional families, that is, those with an employed husband and a not-employed wife, has been decreasing, organizations and researchers have failed to examine the implications of these changes for managerial careers. The objective ofthis study is to find out the effects of post-traditional family structures (in which both parents are employed) on managerial career paths measured by income and career satisfaction. As for family structure, a four-dimensional typology including marital status, parental status, spousal employment status and domestic help status, is used. The results obtained from a survey of MBA degree holders and students show that men in the traditional family structures tend to earn higher income than men in other structures. Having domestic help has proven to benefit both men and women of the post-traditional family structures, in terms ofhigher income. The singles and those married without children do not earn higher income than those married and with children. However, the results obtained with career satisfaction are not very significant. The findings suggest that family structures should receive greater attention from both researchers and organizations.
