I want to let you know my situation in my current project. We have the release on Aug. I have been working on the project for last one & half months without any leave/holiday.
We don't have proper plan for the project, mostly everyday we get a task to finish it within that day such as writing the test case and data keying-in.
And, every friday we get a mail for coming on the weekend. So now everyone is getting frustrated with such work environment.
Can anyone tell me how to cope up with this situation? Moreover, my project manager is also supporting the customer, not us.
If someone has experience of such kind of pressure, please share with us.
For two or three months it's ok, but how long we can do work without any leave/holiday.
Deadlines are tough and if the deadlines don't have any room for movement then this is what happens. This is, in general, the software industry.
By comparison, in the video game industry they can work up to 100 hours a week or more when a game is coming up for release, since it's being marketed for a very specific day. Just be glad you're not on that boat.
9 out of 10 people I prove wrong agree that I'm right. The other person is my wife.
