(on average:
including meetings, overtime oncall and weekends, reading work-related emails, remote and WFH;
but excluding commutes, meal/restroom breaks, and socializing - unless productively multitasking)

    How to interpret results: compare proportion of yes / (total votes) = yes / (yes + no) for each company:

    Amazon: 29/53 = 55%
    Apple: 21/39 = 54%
    Microsoft: 22/44 = 50%

    So looks like Apple is the « winner » for long weeks so far. Doing at least 60 for the past 4 weeks. Not typical though. Usually around 40.

  • I know a guy who claims to work ~ 20 hr / week at Microsoft, but 30-40 is more common if you're lucky. YMMV

    A lot of time spent checking emails and responding to texts and thinking about work that pushes the time well above 40 to even 60

    Usually I work about 45 hours a week. Most of the time its only one or two days per week that are long, when some experiment or whatever runs long. I don’t mind. Let the traffic dissipate a bit.
