Discussion on: What is the most overworked you've ever been?

I used to work several back to back 300+h/mo months on a regular basis every time there was another "crisis" in a project because some idiot manager promised more than they should've, typically about 12-14h/day for 6-7 days a week.

It was stupid, the results were awful, and the pay wasn't good enough anyway. People need to not be proud of such things and find a better job when their managers treat them like that.

Nowadays I put a lot of effort into trying to not overwork myself so every hour I do work, I am at peak performance. I deliver much better value for the time and money spent, and when there's a crisis I can stretch a bit.

The worst was when one of the managers hung out at the office "to join us" and all they had to do to spend their time was browse Facebook and Youtube, yet they had to be there to piss the rest of us off.
