November 2001 through the beginning of June 2002, I worked an average of
60 hours per week. This is considered the norm--perhaps even light--at
my organization; it is the culture. There is no increase in salary to
cover the extra hours.

I would appreciate any feedback on the average hours worked per week for

salaried TW's. I have heard some scary figures that are considered
for a base salary, with increases in salary level almost automatically
entailing longer hours. I understand that particular projects often
extra work, and I am asking primarily about the average--including "take

home," if this is considered the norm at your organization. Any
would be helpful.
