+ - Are 12-16 Hour Workdays 'A Good Life'?

Submitted by theodp
theodp (442580) writes "'It's important to me,' former Opsware CEO Ben Horowitz recalls saying as he threatened a manager for termination because one of his subordinates failed to conduct 1:1 meetings, 'that the people who spend 12 to 16 hours/day here, which is most of their waking life, have a good life. It’s why I come to work.' Ben seems to be cut from the same management cloth as new Yahoo CEO Marissa "I-Don't-Really-Believe-In-Burnout" Mayer, who boasted how she solved the work-life balance problems of mother-of-three 'Katie' [presumably Twitter's Katie Stanton], who was required to attend nightly 1 a.m. video conference calls with her Google Finance team in Bangalore, by no longer making Katie also stay for late meetings on her Google day shift on those occasions where it'd make her miss her kids' soccer games and recitals."
