You know, I used to play office games like this. Investment banking is really an emotionally unhealthy profession because it's almost like a competition to see who's toughest and who can stay late the longest. We had analysts wandering around the floor at 4 AM to see who else was there and who left "early." And if you've done work for one team but still had more to do for the other team, you wait until right before you leave to send everything off, just so you can show off that 4 AM timestamp. Now I'm at a job where I have to come in much earlier (6 AM buses are no fun, especially in winter), but almost everyone leaves around 7 or 8 PM. I rarely get emails past that time or on weekends, and when I do they're things that no one expects until the next work day. It's so refreshing to be in an environment where managers and coworkers actually care about work-life balance, and no one feels the need to shoot off a late email to "prove" dedication.

Haha...I send emails and faxes first thing in the morning so he'll know how early I get to work, (I'm more of a morning person)...

NO i would never do that. It is like showing him/her I have no life and therefore, can take all the jobs that he/she is going to pile onto me, since i am awake 24/7. BAD IDEA to do that, and it is unprofessional, bad time management. Even if i have a reply to a work email, i will always do it the next day.

That is something I was told to do on day one "If you are up working late, or working on a weekenend, email your manager to ask a question, or just to advise them your prgoress" totally works

Mine would see through it in a heartbeat. *lol* All our programs are specific to our IP and can't be accessed from home, so she'd know all I was doing was reading emails rather than any actual work.
