My manager is one of those that think the job is never done. He, and many others at my workplace, often work until well after 6 and often through lunch. Then there's the typical 10-11PM email responses. Our company recently went through a "lean" process which promoted the idea of "do more with less" without really fleshing out what that means and I've come to realize that management has interpreted this to mean "get more work done in the same amount of time with less people" instead of "improve your process to reduce wasted energy and increase productivity".
My manager is also under the impression that increased work hours are an "industry trend" in which we'll just have to concede and comply with. Personally I think we're just in the calm before the storm. People will put up with this mentality for a year or two before they start to look outside the company for opportunities. Burnout and fatigue are inevitable when you have employees working additional hours on a regular basis, with or without compensation (without in my case).
I'm curious to see how this is within other companies. Do you guys feel perfectly fine leaving at 5 or do you always feel like there's always "one more thing" that can be squeezed in before you leave for the day? Are you finding yourself working normal hours or consistently being pressured to put in a few extra hours a week without compensation?
I started with Gu's and they worked really well until recently. They seem to make me want to throw up a little bit so I'm curious to see what others use.
While I do consider myself a good runner, I don't necessarily consider myself a well informed or educated runner...I just run. I'm looking forward to sharing tips, tricks, and insights with the rest of the community.
