Work culture in Japan

Based on friend's working experience in Japan, but exaggerated (he didn't play games in office :P ). While it's normal to work overtime till 7-8pm in Singapore, it's normal to work overtime till 11pm-1am in Tokyo...

日本語バージョン:

残業は本当に必要ですか?

  1. Ha-ha. Good one.

    One my friend, told me that he learned how to take a nap sitting stright with open eyes :lol: He complained that his co-workers reports to boss about each violation of working ethics, like reading news or playing RPG on work place.

    2. I do not know how, but he told me that he could nap with open eyes. I think that is a result of long years of training. BTW, he is states now and could sleep legally in his cubicle without being catched and punished for that :lol:

      That RPG game on picture looks very suspicious. What is it?

      ewww...

  2. Ok so I believe that is just sad. Companies eother mesaure your achievemnts by either accomplishment or by doing time (yes, sitting in your desk for 8 hours is like doing time)...The only why I stay after work is ONLY because I have not finish something I should have, and that is final. I was one of the few $%&% that satyed until the boss left the office because "oh no, what would HE think if I leave first" until yeah...I grew some balls :P

    1. LOL, it takes time to grow those balls, I understand perfectly :P

      Luckily I don't sit in the same room with my boss back in Singapore.
      But he did catch me coming late once... (but nothing happened, so out of guilt I stayed a bit late)
      Anyway, I did all my work :P
