Workaholics, or people who work in “extreme jobs,” cost themselves, their families and their employers dearly, according to a new Center for Work-Life Policy study.

The study defined extreme jobs as those exceeding 60 hours per week that require fast-paced work, tight deadlines, vast responsibility for company profitability and constant travel and events outside of the normal work schedule.

While a high percentage of such workers report declining physical, mental and family health, they also report that they enjoy the thrill of their work and the compensation it brings.
