Women probably already felt what a new workplace study is now claiming: that not only do we work hard, but that women work much harder than our male counterparts do. TheFIT's report shows that while both men and women try to limit their work days to five a week, 54 percent of women work nine hours or more a day compared to 41 percent of men who do so. In addition, women complain less and only 17 percent said their friends would feel bad if they knew how much they made while 26 percent of men believed the same.

But women are getting recognized for all the work they put into their jobs: 52 percent of women received bonus compared to 45 percent of men. Even when female employees go on vacation, they're slightly more willing than men to do work during their time off.

“What we’ve seen in analyzing this initial data is that there are measurable differences in how women and men report and perceive their workplace,” TheFIT's founder Art Papa said to Business Insider. “These differences illuminate the need for honest consideration in finding your fit when you look for a job, not just finding a job where you meet the qualifications.”
