It is little concerning for me to see the amount of hours of so many of our team crossing 160 hours which is full time (8 hours per day average) and I wonder how are they doing in their well-being/personal lifes. Some of the hours are almost 9 + average per day. I mean, that sounds like a LOT. I find this report exceptional in that sense…
