MIX Magazine has a fantastic issue out right now titled IS YOUR JOB KILLING YOU? (and subtitled OR JUST MAKING YOU DEAF?) about how difficult it is to work as an engineer. Although it's aimed primarily at people in the music industry, it really applies to all of us in sound, including editors and mixers in the film industry. I strongly recommend it as reading for everyone thinking about a career in post sound.

Among the topics it covers are:
  • Maintaining control over your life and the long hours of the business
  • Controlling sound levels to protect hearing
  • How to survive working on the road
  • How to maintain a relationship when working long hours
  • Studio ergonomics and health
