“Work addicts also report long working hours, few sleeping hours and a small number of hours dedicated to non-work activities. Their hierarchical position within the organisation is relatively low, but it is a group where females are strongly represented. This group perceives a low growth, but high-pressure culture within their organisation which leads them to report many conflicts at work, as well as many work/family conflicts.” (Buelens, 2002, p. 64)
