At 60 hours a week, you would really have to love your job. . Or be either completely nuts or desperate. As it happens, it's an employer's market, and I expect they're in no hurry to see that change.

Wally, my mentor, is the perfect one to point this out. At best, Wally only works 20% for the company (and I know that's a stretch), and they're lucky his work week is just as likely less than 40 hours.

I love this strip's sarcasm. Companies, such as google, apple, M$, create a mystique that working for them is nirvana, and as a result the company itself is a massive idea factory. It’s a ploy for shareholders that breaks down eventually. But that’s where the “we give you something for nothing” hype comes in. The poor sap is likely getting paid for 40, but for some reason he’s at google for 60, and he’s convinced that 12 of those hours are really his own time? And why does he need to be at google to think about his own ideas? Maybe, because if he mentions the idea during any one of those 60 hours per week, it’s google’s property under intellectual property laws, perhaps? The moral to the story: think about your own ideas, on your own time.

50% working, 40% answering e-mails on why a project is behind schedule, 10% presenting a report to managment how answering all their e-mails with detailed responses are taking too much time, and 10 seconds for management to send a new e-mail saying rework the data differently and redo the presentation asap.
