Needless to say, I was not perceived as working hard because I was there (early) when no one else was around and I was not there when the bosses were checking to see who was dedicated.

venny's experiences in playing the "corporate game" mirror my own.

In my first job out of college, one of the senior engineers advised me "Saying you came in on Saturday is as good as being here -- the boss never comes in on the weekend."

No sense working on Saturday if you don't get "credit" for it.
