Reasons Behind Overwork

Senior software engineers, team leads, project managers, and other professionals often work 12-14 hours a day. However, the reason behind this overwork is not necessarily a skill issue or a capability issue. Instead, it is often a result of:

  • Project managementย problems
  • Risk managementย issues
  • Effort estimationย problems
  • Sales teamย issues (e.g., not pricing deals accordingly)
  • Communicationย problems
  • Customerย expectations and demands

Consequences of Overwork

While working long hours may be necessary occasionally, making it a regular practice can lead to:

  • Burnout: physical, emotional, and mental exhaustion

Importance of Addressing Overwork

It is essential to raise your voice and bring attention to the underlying issues causing overwork. This can help resolve the problems sooner or later.
