Re: Google (response to post by mogers)
Even in India where people in IT usually work for close to 16 hours a day, I don't see Google following that culture (though I have seen people working like that at times).
I can speak for myself and as of now I definitely don't work 16 hours for sure. I stay in office from 9.00 - 19.00 and that includes time spent in Cafeteria, Foosball, etc :)
When there is a deadline people tend to work more. But that is common in any industry I think.

I think the most important point is 'Noone is forced to work'. If I work insane hours, then it is by choice and work and the environment are more interesting here compared to majority of companies in India.
