Work-Life (Im)Balance

03 May

The Anonymous Lawyer takes a tongue-in-cheek look at Work Life Balance. While the article is focused on law firm associates, it could really apply to people in any form of corporate slavery, err profession! 😉

The post has gems like these:

"Associates today whine about all the hours we make them work, but as the article says, it's nothing compared to when people of my generation started out at the firm. Today's associates are coddled. They expect weekends off. They expect a full night's sleep. They expect to be able to devote time to their families. We didn't have those luxuries and neither should they…

…The Wall Street Journal has it right. We don't expect enough these days. We allow associates to go home. We allow them to leave for doctors' appointments when they're sick. We allow them to go to the bathroom. We shouldn't. We coddle them. It's our fault they expect luxury treatment. We've trained them to expect it. Our fault. That has to change."
