My brother is doing that at his current company. In a normal economy he would be working a normal 40 hour work week at Cisco. In this economy he has to do the work of 2 or 3 people working 50 hours a week at another company which will remain nameless. Before he didn't have a problem with it because they were paying him on an hourly basis which meant overtime but then they switched him to salary. He's still a good solider but I have a hard time believing that he won't get better offers if/when the economy picks up.

This "you should be thankful you have a job" crap is getting old.

yep, we see a lot of this at my co. It hits the hourly folks hardest, with a lot of work that has traditionally belonged to management being pushed down to them. and... like you say, we then pressure them to limit their overtime. The impact on morale is tangible.

My company has always run lean with staffing, but right now it's so bad it's a joke. There's really no incentive to work hard, because you only get more work piled on you if you're a top performer. It's sad when everyone's goal is to just do enough to slide by. What's amazing is the company can't see or understand that this is the culture they have created and continue to perpetuate.

Re: What did you do at work today?

I will maintain the connections I had but I'm not going to be sitting in on meetings so info from some people won't be as quickly or directly received at times.

LOL. Well yeah you're partially right. It's part of, a big part, what I'm currently working on. There's more, it just doesn't exist yet. Working on creating it

This is us right now. i'm an IT proj mgr and as of today have 5 different projects going at once, plus several other collateral duties thrown in. The more you show you can handle, the more they pile on.

Re: What did you do at work today?

Today I emailed an associate in China telling him that we had finally satisfied a customer in St. Louis.
After four attempts.
And this is because Chinese manufacturing suxxorz at basic quality manufacturing processes.
But I didn't mention that because I know they dont give a flying fox.
