A new survey has found that more than 75% of professionals in the financial services sector in the Asia Pacific region work over and above their contracted hours.
When they are not clocking up the hours at the office, many find their weekends disrupted by work.
IT consultant Lester Eng says he can sometimes work 12 to 14 hours a day, six days a week.
The 22-year-old says he wishes he could have a better work-life balance.
