Oh, I disagree. Sure, there is some griping and moaning and groaning, but overwork, long hours, and the "do it at any cost" attitude are what many of us have to deal with each and every day. I'm interested in what coping mechanisms folks use when confronted with bogus schedules and the like. How *do* you do a good job when you're expected to place to place the company and product first and your own life further down on the list of priorities?
