When I started, it was a great 9/80. I felt slightly underpaid for what I did, but had a great work life balance so it was okay. Increasingly, the expectation began to work like 70 hours a week, and the "incentive" was that you might be able to go home after only 50 hours or so if things went well. No overtime or incentives for employees doing the work was offered, although hardworking and successful employees could get "rewarded" by having to spend more hours doing even more work, because they can do it and it needs to get done!
