Work Conditions: Computer and Information Systems Managers
Computer and information systems managers spend most of
their time in an office. Most work at least 40 hours a week and may
have to work evenings and weekends to meet deadlines or solve
unexpected problems. Some computer and information systems managers may
experience considerable pressure in meeting technical goals within
short timeframes or tight budgets. As networks continue to expand and
more work is done remotely, computer and information system managers
have to communicate with and oversee offsite employees using modems,
laptops, e-mail, and the Internet.
Like other workers who sit
continuously in front of a keyboard, computer and information system
managers are susceptible to eyestrain, back discomfort, and hand and
wrist problems such as carpal tunnel syndrome.
