Would you work overtime when the bos give some mod when project nearly meet the deadline.?

I want to do it, but if I work on it the bos don't pay me and later on he will do that again and again..

    I won’t do it, except if I get paid for it. At least in this company.

    Don’t do it without getting anything in return... it can literally be any worthless piece of shit. But do not do it “for free”. Otherwise it will be expected of you

    If you won't get paid for overtime in money, you should ask it as free time then. That's a standard at our company: you work extra hours, you get as many hours to cut off somewhere else. Sometimes it means that if we're not busy and things aren't really going your way that day, just leave the office earlier - or like I'm doing right now with my cumulative extra hours, extended my holidays by a week.

    @100110111 in our company you get officially nothing for overtime. Only if you were on something like a workshop and you are important enough then you get free time.

    The boss gets 8 hours a day at base rate. If the boss wants more than 8 hours and isn't willing to pay, the boss can find the nearest puddle with a downed power line and go frolick himself.

    I'm lucky enough to have worked in companies where you're expected to work overtime for free... but they turn a blind eye if you leave early/arrive late. And if asked to work considerable overtime they make some recompense, normally time off.

    It depends on the company and your boss. If you like your boss then do him a favour and expect one in return. If you want to climb the ladder then expect to go the extra mile. If you know your extra effort will never be recognised then up to you; don't do it or do it to make yourself feel good.

    Hate to say, but that's not a benefit. One of the general considerations given for degrees and experience is a disconnect between the hours you work and the product you produce. He's not being cool, that's a given.

    The only thing that matters is delivering what you've agreed to, whether that takes 1 hour or 10 is down to your estimation and time management skills.

    There is no ladder, companies have no loyalty anymore. That's the "I'm only doing this job until I can move into management" thinking that enables shitty middle managers to gut departments to save money and pad their position, makes everyone a contractor and perpetuates the cancerous perception the engineering isn't a career track and literally anyone can do it.

    @SortOfTested for this one I agree, but when the bos add / update something that make you work more than it should be without update the timeline, then I need to talk with someone

    It depends on the context, personally I've been burnt enough times that I don't left a figure without pay
