Which do you prefer? Four ten hour days gives you an extra day off, but less time to yourself after work.

I'd rather work four tens. The extra day off more than makes up for the couple of hours per day that are "lost."

Considering I work 10 hours a day, five days a week and 7 hours on the sixth day, either one of these would seem like a holiday to me.

As little as possible to get the job done well but not any less than that.

I'm not a big fan of facetime or punching a clock.. if it takes you 10 hours a week to do a quality job, so be it. If it takes you 100 hours, so be it as well!

If only more employers thought that way...

I'd take the four 10 hour days, no contest.

The problem with my company is they expect all exempt employees to work 5 ten hour days, so they'd never think of going down to a 4 day work week.

Bosses pressure workers to work ten hours already so if they changed the rules to make it offical, could you picture yourself working a 12 hour day to look good?
