Tales of time-hungry organizations - from Silicon Valley to Wall Street and from London to Hong Kong - abound. Managers routinely overload their subordinates, contact them outside of business hours, and make last-minute requests for additional work. To satisfy those demands, employees arrive early, stay late, pull all-nighters, work weekends, and remain tied to their electronic devices 24/7. And those who are unable - or unwilling - to respond typically get penalized.
