In many ways, that's been my position (if I'm not actually getting paid for
the time).

95% of the time, it works. I have no issues with putting in extra time when
needed. I have issues being expected to put in free time "for the team".
I'll stop there...I've lost "Team Members" that matter more to me because I
made the wrong decisions in the name of success...

SO, I agree completely with you Gene. I handle these situations the way
you've outlined. If I run into flak I either work it out or leave.

Simple.
