re: My personal experience has been that long hours are rarely productive,
other than creating the perception with management that the individual
putting in the long hours is more dedicated. Such behavior is useful to that
end, but not often toward overall productivity. (tekwrytr)
Perceptions that need changing in the 21st century.
Management perceptions *must* be equal as regards both the individual that
stays at work long hours and the other individual that works hard but must
then go home and take care of children, sick relatives, etc. If not,
there's a valid EEO issue. The perception as originally posted is an
obsolete dinosaur and is often sexist and should vanish ASAP.
