Re: work life balance
@Sachinee, They are mistaken. Applying preesure on me and working around the clock makes me want to crack, not work harder.

@Shamika: Only those people work long hours who don't have a social life, who are living away from their family. Also some work centres have good indoor food and entertainment sources, so youngsters don't leave.

Freelancing is a very good way to Keep out of constant pressure. Although it may have some challenges but overall I think freelancing is pretty good.

Re: work life balance
@Angelfuego: That I'd exactly the problem. Bosses tend to think they are doing good motivational work for the employees by krrping them under pressure. But it is the exact opposite. Employees don't care about working long hours.

Re: work life balance
@impACTNOW, I agree. It is a 24 hour a day job and can be exhausting. I think employers should be more sensitive to this and not expect you to be working around the clock, even if the technology allows for that. There needs to be boundaries, limitations, and realistic expectations that support a balance that would reduce us getting burnt out.

@tECHNOCRATI, Very true. They are fortunate to be employed and to have an income. Despite the drawbacks, it does sound great to not commute, work in your pajamas without make up, and ssometimes even have a flexible schedule.

Re: work life balance
I agree with you. Sometimes you feel the 8 hour shift is not sufficient to finish your work. Mainly when you have meetings on a daily basis.

Re: work life balance

In corporate jobs I rarely if ever got a break and usually ate my lunch during conference calls or meetings. Eight hour days were a rarity especially in IT where my phone would ring at all hours with issues. It is the reality of living in a 24/7 connected world, burnout is a major issue.
