Clearly, they have not worked at a large investment bank. I've done my share of seven-day weeks, overnighters, 'emergency' flights to fix someone else's sh*t and months without a real break. Try working on a trading desk or a trading floor or when a crap manager is trying to make brownie points by giving his team an unrealistic goal or deadline. You think you know stress? Pah: you know nothing.
 
So, yes, the statement is silly, at best. Shows a complete lack of experience and understanding of survival and working in the corporate world. Take it as fluff and steer your own course. Good luck.
