Cincinnati, OH, IT industry.

my work starts even before I start for work, around 7.30.

be home by around 6.

dunno why americans love working early in the day

EDIT: depending on production problems, it continues even after I reach home, not often though.

hmmm... it's bell curve alright. i was expecting the avg would be 7pm. but looks like 8pm it is.. i am sure good infrastructure would help all of us to spend an hour more daily with our families. or maybe it is a demanding work culture these days.
