work balance


Picture yourself in a job interview and like usual they tell you something along these lines: “Our work schedule is from eight to five.” Then you think to yourself. Good, a solid eight-hour work schedule with a one-hour lunch break. Then the first week you notice people leave at six or seven. Even worse, in the corner office, the Vice President works twelve hours, it is even hard to imagine him or her fitting the same amount of work to eight hours. What is going on?
