I'm in the process of applying for a job and am in direct comms with their CMO who I'd be reporting into. I've noticed they've always emailed me or responded to me in the evening / weekends, even with non-urgent emails. Is this a work life balance red flag?

Echoing VP1: my days are often full, and I try and take care of important tasks when I free up from my other responsibilities. You may want to take it as a positive sign or sign of respect, because they want to be sure to respond to your questions in a timely manner (or as close to timely as they can get).

A few good explanations above but this is also a great “teachable moment” on why to use scheduled sends on GMail/Outlook.

Possibly but not necessarily. It may just be their schedule given kids or other exogenous factors. And the higher you up are, the more you often have to work. [often, not always]

Work life balance is always entirely up to you. Its unlikely you'll find an entire company of people who only work typical business hours, especially at the leadership and c- levels. But that doesn't mean you can't set your parameters and stick to them.

Depends on the company, depends on the sector. If you are reporting into the CMO, expect that your hours will be their hours.

MIght also be timezones difference?
