100 hour weeks to 120 hour weeks.

I hope those engineers are getting double bonus equity or something. 100 hour weeks is “you live in the office and all you do is work”. I’ve done 100 hour weeks in my game crunch days. It’s impossible to maintain a personal life.

I cannot imagine anyone being productive at 120 hour weeks. WTF is this? North Korea?!

I'm self employed and have been reducing my hours worked per day cause I found I was more effective with a good rest and without forcing myself to work those extra 1-2 hours each day. Crazy hey.
