Being a Brand U manager has its power, money, and perks. The rich but unhappy syndrome is called ‘affluenza.’ But, there is a high price to being a manager these days. But why are so many rich but unhappy.
The hours are long for a typical Brand U manager. Forget 45 hours a week. Two highly paid Brand U managers may now do the work of three. Also even with telecommunications, customers want personal contact – high touch, high tech. This means that many managers and professionals must commute or fly more often resulting in less time with the family. More unhappiness.
