My salary is based on a 40 hour work week. I have no problems putting in
50 or so if it benefits the company and my growth within the company.
Sometimes I've put in 60, 70, even 80 hours in a week, but I try not to
make a habit out of it - putting in that much time and only being
compensated for 40 is quite unfair, and usually means either a) you're
not managing your time appropriately at work, or b) your company has
some serious project planning and management issues to deal with.
