I’m a developer manager of a small dev team in finance. Been here over a year now. I work a normal 40 hours minimum, with 1 WFH day each week. However, we are often required to work weekends and evenings as well for production deployments. No comp days, no form of additional compensation at all.

Is this normal? Am I expecting too much to think if I was working until 11PM on Monday night, I should not be expected to be in office by 9AM Tuesday? Or some sort of comp?

Having said that, I would recommend you to have a conversation with your account leadership to see if you can build a workaround that works for your team.

In our teams we try to balance our project work to be around 45 hours per week. If we know we are going over, we adjust that Friday. But I recognize it is a workaround and we really don’t have system in place to officially handle these overages and other PRD activities as a firm.

Are you salary or hourly? Was the hiring manager upfront in the interviews about the evening/ weekend OT and overloaded schedule?

Not your fault. You assumed that was true and didn’t need to dig deeper. I’d mention this to whomever you report to. Is your comp decent? Do you get a year end bonus?

In my corp, if you’re salary you work if/when the work requires. But we also take additional personal days on an honor system.

In my previous job , I had too much workload. I switched job recently, now I get twice the salary and less than half the workload. While you might think I am boasting, I am not.. rather I am deeply infuriated by sitting idle ..

Don't know how to get back to my work , my ikagai.
