But we find the software professionals sandwiched between the never-ending deadlines and family needs. Getting two days leave for a family function is almost impossible. Children get detached from the parents and get their guidance from other sources, which may not be good. With a plastic card or cell phone around their necks, software professionals look like robots and behave like bonded labourers. Everyday their families wait for them until late night.
