We all know the eternal conflict of quality vs quantity @work ! It is obvious more working hours do not usually translate to improved output. But we conveniently ignore the truth.
This trend is rampant in India. I hear so many managers who prefer to work late and ‘end up in office just because the system/boss believes’!

Coffee/smoking breaks, apart from ‘social-media breaks’ take bulk of our precious time at work.
