I'm software engineer in a medium sized (~250-300 employees) service based company. Obviously the ultimate goal of the company is 100% client satisfaction.
Now the clients are from different time zone (most of them are in US Pacific Time) which is 12 hours and 30 minutes behind my timezone. We have weekly sync up meeting with clients in their working hours. So obviously we have to manage to attend the calls at around 10 PM to 11 PM our time.
Sometimes, there is more than one meeting per week. No managers raise their voice in my company. Also almost all the projects have couple of such calls per week. It would have been okay if the frequency of sync up was biweekly or so. But I think this is something which kills the purpose of work-life balance.
I'm not being paid extra for attending such calls. Also I can't deny directly as they consider this as our key responsibility to be available all the time whenever required.
What should be done in such cases? How to explain them that we also require some mental peace to relieve stress. Or this is the time to reconsider my future at this company?
Edit This is not duplicate of this answer. As my out of work hours are not unexpected. It's predefined by a meeting invite.
