I worked as a database and Unix system admin in silicon valley. Your statement of 8-5 for an engineer made me laugh. If we ONLY put in 50 hours, we were lucky - it was considered a light week. More like 60-64 hours a week. The job was 7X24 with calls at 02:00 A.M. and the expectation of making the 08:00 A.M. meeting... I loved the work, but hated the job. In many ways, I was thankful for the DotCom crash - it forced me to change careers .. to nursing.powderedtoastman wrote: ↑Mon Jun 12, 2017 9:48 pmI work as an electrical engineer.. typically I do 8-5 Monday through Thursday and take off early Friday.Since my working hours are mostly fixed and my commute is not too long, and especially since I don't have any wife or kids to keep me busy at home, I am fortunate to get plenty of time to practice/play... but it's still not enough!!!
