There are no slack­ers in Sil­i­con Val­ley

Castillo: The pace is def­i­nitely much faster here com­pared with other com­pa­nies I have worked for. Tech­ni­cally, there are no of­fice hours and ev­ery­one hus­tles to get the job done. I’ve come to ac­cept that my role and re­spon­si­bil­i­ties can change from week to week given how fast the com­pany is grow­ing. It can change from lead­ing a project in­volv­ing sev­eral re­gional teams to learn­ing a new pro­gram­ming lan­guage needed to cre­ate re­port­ing dash­boards that the whole com­pany will use.

An­to­nio: It re­ally de­pends on what type of com­pany you are work­ing for. If you are work­ing in a startup expect to work long hours in­clud­ing week­ends and hol­i­days. In a startup your team is al­ways fight­ing to make sure that ev­ery­thing works. If you are in a mid- to large-sized com­pany there will be times that you will need to work ex­tra hours. But th­ese hours are pre-de­ter­mined so you can pre­pare for them.

Tan: As for me, I’ve learned to work within the bounds of eight to 10 hours a day as that’s the only way that I will be able to ac­com­plish all other things that I want to achieve.
