Kathy Sierra: Balance in Life

Kathy Sierra once again reminds us that only the truly intelligent employers realize that the Work/Life balance is more important than ANYTHING else. [here]

And her reason for this: clients who abuse startups and small companies who then abuse their employees to work miracles.

The takeaway:

And as the tech employment market starts to tick up ever so slightly, it’s becoming less and less of an “employer’s market” again. I don’t care about the Aeron chair, but I do care about having a life beyond work. If you can’t make your business model work without promising your clients a miracle (which we’re expected to pull off), change your business model! And when you DO ask us to go our ass off again, a little worshipping goes a long way ; )
