    100 hour weeks to 120 hour weeks.

    I hope those engineers are getting double bonus equity or something. 100 hour weeks is “you live in the office and all you do is work”. I’ve done 100 hour weeks in my game crunch days. It’s impossible to maintain a personal life.

    I cannot imagine anyone being productive at 120 hour weeks. WTF is this? North Korea?!

      100 hour weeks are not productive either. That’s a mean 14 hours 7 days a week. You cannot stay productive that long and even less so without a single day off. You’ll produce shit 4 hours per day and use the first hour of the next just to clean it up.

        Oh 100%. 100 hour work weeks are absolutely insane and clear productivity theatre. To then pretend that adding an extra 20 hours will do more. Man what a waste.

      I’m self employed and have been reducing my hours worked per day cause I found I was more effective with a good rest and without forcing myself to work those extra 1-2 hours each day. Crazy hey.
