If one of my guys worked a couple extra hours one evening and submitted an overtime card (not that we have them!) I'd be less than impressed.

It's the natural of the game that one will be expected to put in some extra hours here and there.

If it is a deathmarch, then sure.

Otherwise showing a willingness to work a bit extra should rather count in your favor when it comes to bonuses and increases.

Cheers,
Simon
