Work-Life Balance in Australia

What's Hot

Hi! I'd like to ask the working migrants in this forum (whether baguhan or matagal na sa Australia) kung kamusta po ang work-life balance nyo? I've heard po kasi na mas chill daw sa Australia (like not super pressured or stressful sa work), but I just want to know if this is true. Which industry po kayo and location? How would you compare work-life balance in Australia as compared to PH (or other countries)?

    Hi! Well it depends maybe if which industry a person is in. Here kase napakadalas mag holidays ng mga tao.

    In my experience, I work. Napaparaanan ko ang homeworks and exams pero focused ako sa work.

    I have the same question as @athelene especially those in the field of IT.

    Im working here in SG, the working culture here, as all people know is very stressful. I have few friends (ex-SG) who said that they have more relax work in AU.

    Would like to know from people in this forum.

    @athelene I'm in the financial services working full time and from my experience, I can say na mas laid back yung working environment dito compared sa Pilipinas. The management does not expect you to do overtime work and mas may flexibility dito like work-from-home or flexible schedule.

    @Lift2Surf2Tri yung sa IT dept namin, I can see na medyo nag oovertime sila but nothing later than 7pm but that's not an every day thing. Depends maybe on the workload.

    yun mga friends ko meron na feedback sakin. sa Sydney sila based and sa Architecture industry din. it's very different daw sa working style sa Pinas at dito sa Singapore lalo na sa may family at kids. Yun BIM manager nila by 5pm pauwi na kasi susunduin na yun mga kids from school, and they have the option to work from home. yun iba nman kapag tapos na yun ginagawa, they willl lie low and not come to office and nobody will question. it's so unlike here in SG na kailanagan everyday the boss is expecting you to do OThank you. and every Friday afternoon relax na sila getting ready for the weekend. Yun naman isang friend ko when he was starting pa lang sa Perth 5 years ago he was always staying late until 8pm kasi galing din sya dito sa SG, until di na nakatiis ang boss nya at sinabihan sya na umuwi on time lol!

    Romans 12:12 Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.

    James 5:7-8 Be patient, therefore, brothers, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient about it, until it receives the early and the late rains. You also, be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand.

    Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.

    @kaidenMVH Wow really? That sounds really nice! Bale parang priority pala sa kanila ang personal and family life?

    I'm a bit nervous kasi going to Australia, since I wonder if I should expect the same "OThank You" culture there. In my experience in Taiwan kasi, yung small firm na pinasukan ko bihira mag-OT; saktong 6pm sibat na ko and walang problema sa boss. Yung bigger firm naman na pinasukan ko "OThank You" naman sila; yung tipong paalis ka na tapos saka lang magsasabi na may additional work na ipapagawa. So hindi ka makauwi until matapos talaga yung work, minsan aabutin hanggang 2am. Ever since I left that job nagsimula akong magdalawang isip kung magwwork pa ba ako sa archi firm after I graduate sa Australia.
