Stress / anxiety


My hours aren’t really that bad, averages 40-45 a week. It’s the stress, anxiety, and pressure that get me. I’d happily do more hours under a relaxed atmosphere.


Hours are decent 40-50 a week. It’s the walking on egg shells waiting for something to blow up.




Those aren’t mece answer choices to me OP. Hours lead to stress and anxiety


Stress and anxiety can be managed, you don't always have a choice with hours though. So if I had to pick - #1 - but I'm in my 20's and willing to make sacrifices / can still find a balance at least sometimes

Hours and working on proposals.

What? How could I dislike anything about consulting?? This is my dream job! :D

Can’t tell if sarcasm or not
