Idioms in a work context.
There are many different types of jobs but in most companies the employees are required to pull together as a team, that is to say, to work with our colleagues helping and supporting them. Teamwork means we must pull our weight (do as much work as the others) and not pass the buck or let others do the difficult tasks because there are some things we don't like doing. If we work in this cooperative way we won't let our colleagues down; we'll always do the tasks asked of us and deliver on time.
Of course, we mustn't consistently work long hours, that is to say, spend too much time at work or work too hard or we could become a workaholic and that can be bad for our health. It's important to find the correct work-life balance so we have sufficient time to do other things like hobbies or being with our family. We should pace ourselves (not work frantically) and try to be easy-going (relaxed and friendly) in the office so we don't burn out (drop from exhaustion) before we're 35!
