They even have a word for dying from overwork. That's disturbing.

I gotta pass this along to a friend, he's been putting in 10-15 hr over time per week, working till 8 or 9 Fridays, and going in on Sat till 2 or 3. He took over as lead engineer for his department, and they lost a lot of his team to the contractor.

He has been binging as a stress releaver too, not good.

this is why i switched out of engineering into business for my 2nd degree. As a designer currently, im putting in hours like crazy with engineers on our projects and as much as i like the OT, i would like to make just as much at normal 40 hour work weeks.

I am hoping for a career change within the next couple years (once my degree is done).

Nope - money is not important enough to me to work such hours. If that's what a job requires, someone else can do it.

i mainly do it now to fund my investments. eventually i would like to not even have to work a normal 9 to 5 and instead work at my own business and pace, figure put the time in now and chill later.

technically no.....but my gf does and i live with her pretty much. Im lucky to have a luving significant others that knows its how I bring home the dinero i guess. I mostly do my extra hours early in the am so i have the evening to spend with my family.

several of the engineers i work with are married and have kids, but still work til 3am sometimes getting submittals done in time. Its the way of the biz apparently.

on another note my father worked double shifts for 20+ years to afford the life my sister and I had. Of course he is old fashioned and felt he had to bring home the bread leaving my mother to shuffle me around to my many sporting events. luckly his health pan'ed out (minus a mild heart attack when he was 55) and he is retired on a beach house in ecuador with some 30 somehting year old gf hahaha.

I dont want to be like him (working until my 65) so if i put my time in now and put my money where it needs to be then i can enjoy the time i have with my kids unlike when i was one.
