Our work at Fractured Atlas is never done (it’s not easy to make a difference in the world). This does not mean that we should be working 24/7.
In order to be available for our members, our offices are open Monday-Friday from 9:00AM to 6:00PM ET. A lot of us work the fairly standard 40-hour(ish) work week, but we realize that everyone is different. Sometimes it’s possible to structure a flexible work calendar and create an environment where you can create your schedule to fit you and your job description (having discussed it with your manager first, of course). It’s not always possible for every position, but we strive to be accommodating if it’s possible.
In our ever-connected world today, it’s getting harder to tell the difference between when we’re working and when we’re not. Whether you’re messaging friends at work or reading emails at home, the distinction between “work” and “life” is getting murkier by the minute. We want you to manage your life the best way you know how, but we urge you to take time off to completely disconnect. Experiment with email-free weekends–it can likely wait until Monday. And if you think that you’re unable to take at least a couple of weeks off a year completely disconnected, then we need to chat... STAT.
