What? You've have a problem with 87 hour work weeks? Wimps!

I got no problem with it. I've been there, 90 hour weeks

same here, and 72 hour shifts... i'm single though and its not really a huge problem for me, but EA is getting grads for chicken feed wages, burning them out, firing them and getting a new batch (the do serious recruitment and have huge yearly turnover)... i can see how it'd be a big problem if you had a wife and kids that never saw you and you weren't getting any extra money or comp time to make up for it either...
kind of like heart surgeons needing $300k a year malpractice insurance (or something close) just to be able to work... some laws/regs need changing bad...
I'm all for working hard but c'mon, pay some OT or given them some other incentive if you expect your employees to work insane hours.
My ex-employer Progressive is going through the same thing and a class action suit is pending. Putting in extra hours was pretty much expected of us, some people were working 60-70 hours per week at least.
Like That Guy said about EA, it was the same deal at Progressive, they'd hire a bunch of college kids who didn't know any better, work them to the bone and if you couldn't handle it, they'd fire you without even batting an eye. They fired a couple of people a month, I've never seen a company operate like that, employee morale was always in the dumper needless to say.
