Having been a software engineer for about 4 years, there were times when I remember having to put in extra hours to get things done. However, the majority of my time there has been really pleasant. We were never forced to work all day long so I believe it's more of a corporate culture more than anything else.

Call me crazy but I believe that it is possible to build a company where people can do amazing things without being forced to work extra hours. It's definitely on my to do list with my startup.
