Disclaimer: No employee was hurt while writing this story. But this thread did hit us right in the feels. Did you know that in Austria, many companies have an 8 to 5 shift and people are encouraged to leave at 3 PM on Fridays? No? Did you know that the German government has certain regulations in place to ensure its citizens don't overwork themselves, such as not working more than 48 hours a week and no work on Sundays and national holidays? © Pexels Did you know that Amazon's India chief urged his colleagues and employees to stop responding to work mails or calls after 6 PM? No! Ok, do you know your boss might have bombarded your inbox with multiple messages and work mails as you read this story? Sadly, the latter happens to be the work-culture more of us are a part of. In this dynamic and fast-paced world with cut-throat competition, maintaining work-life balance is harder than that summer body you worked for. No matter how efficient you are in your job, there will always be something or someone because of which your boss will judge you and look down on you. This Twitter thread brilliantly documents the struggles of every Indian employee and the unrealistic expectations our bosses have from us. I absolutely despise how Indian companies and founders, with no concept of life-work balance, shame employees for taking leaves and having a life outside work. Calls on weekends, guilting a person during and post leave, infinite power games. Shameful. — Sukhada (@appadappajappa) August 26, 2018 It all started when a Twitter user named Sukhada, tweeted about how Indian companies have no work-life balance and shame the employees for taking leaves and having a life outside work, a scenario that most of us have experienced in our jobs. And of course, there are jerks who proudly claim that when they got married, they were at work THE VERY NEXT DAY. The day we stop having founders and bosses like this, we can perhaps *start* to talk about mental health at workplaces. — Sukhada (@appadappajappa) August 26, 2018 Her tweet opened a barrage of frustration of employees, which they had bottled up until now. I felt like I was back in a school atmosphere in my first job. Project heads the teachers and we the students. Also you either join in the company retreat or come to a empty office to feed biometrics 9 to 5. Also the brown-nosingð¤¦ — sakkir (@_whosane_) August 26, 2018 This is not just start-ups either. Established cos do the same - of course no one explicitly says 'come on weekends' but when the employees who take 1000 breaks & stay late to show off gets a promotion over those who work efficiently & leave on time, the msg is crystal clear. Sad — Maya Mahadevan (@mayamahadevan) August 26, 2018 I've had to report into extremely sadistic people. So this post is very triggering for me — Protima Rodrigues (@PEyogagirl) August 26, 2018 I guess 90% of professionals face this issue. When we work for them & sacrifice our woffs at times then it's OK with them. Few days of leave as if we asked for share in their shitty property. — NI3 (@NI3INDIAN) August 26, 2018 Do you guys love your job or do these stories sound similar to yours?
