2am team meeting and talking to co-workers while showering: Woman spills tea about her toxic company job
There are varying degrees of dystopian corporate toxicity. Some companies pretend that everyone is one big happy family, with free coffee and ping-pong tables to distract from real-world problems. At the other end of the spectrum are workplaces that completely eradicate any sense of personal boundaries, forcing us to live for work and sacrifice sleep.
Neither of these situations are healthy. And it can be hard to recognize when things are getting out of hand, but then at 2am the team has his meeting to monitor himself and see if he’s still awake I noticed that. Also, think about the fact that you’re forced to check with your co-workers on basic things like when you’re in the shower. At that point, it may be time to consider a career change.

This is what people colloquially call the Big 4 accounting firms in the US: Deloitte, Ernst & Young (EY), PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) and Krinfeld Peat Marwick Gelderer (KPMG).
Devin’s video went viral in the TikTok community. Because many people have had to deal with unfair working hours and incredibly invasive corporate systems at some point in their lives. Being 15 minutes late for him to finish a few work emails or eating instant noodles in front of his computer are both tame compared to what Devin had to go through. It seems that it is. But it’s always easier to give someone else advice that we know we should follow as well.
It’s very easy to recognize that someone else is having work/life balance issues. It is very difficult to see the same issues impacting our daily lives. What is even harder is setting firm boundaries and finding the courage to say firm ones. ‘No! ‘ When you have to sacrifice your physical and mental health for the benefit of others.
In this situation, there are two factors to consider. The first is finance. It can be hard to resist working long hours when you’re promised a steady wage and big bonuses for your troubles. You may be saving for a house or a wedding. Or you might think you’ve saved enough money to take it easy just by burning a candle on both ends for a few years.
Another issue to keep in mind is social pressure. When your coworkers, managers, and bosses all work incredibly long hours, it can be hard to stop doing the same things. After all, we are social animals. We want to be respected and admired by our peers. Going against a group is not comfortable for many people. Especially if you realize you may need to find another employer if you start going against the grain.
but, As covered by Bored Panda Before, the fact of the matter is that each of us is responsible for communicating and enforcing our boundaries when it comes to work. It’s up to us to speak up when enough and act accordingly.
If your company is having a major problem, you should consider meeting with your manager, supervisor, or HR (or all of them) to address the current situation. be friendly. Be diplomatic. But stay firm. Present some possible solutions to the problem and focus on constructive criticism. That is, if the company still sees you as a potential future.
The thing that you have to be really candid and honest with yourself is whether you are willing to stay with your company even if the issue is resolved. If yes, then you are devoting your time and energy to trying to change your work culture in a positive direction. But if no, you’d be better off devoting your resources to looking for a new job. Don’t let the pandemic or the global economic situation make you feel “stuck” at work. There are always alternatives. And your life and dignity are worth more than asking someone for permission to take a shower at night.
