    Might be on a tangent, but do you think there is substantial benefit in showing it to the upper management? I've been in your shoes before - working my ass off on something and thinking that it'll be viewed in a positive light, and while it has been well received and acknowledged (mostly), I've never really gotten any tangible gains out of it. Just my two cents.

      I agree. It might just highlight your Managers incompetence of not planning well enough for this critical project. Though you might be acknowledged for your hard work, the project can still be seen as a failure.

    You just wasted 4*7(or 5?) hours of your life. Small price for a long term life lesson.

    when your manager leaves, make an effort to say bye, do this enough you establish yourself as a "hard" worker

  • You work for Samsung. This is expected. Thousands of Samsung employees working 12-14 hours a day. Why are you so special?

    Management doesn’t care how much effort you put in

    Automate things that needs same repeated support. Then you won’t spend 12 hours.
    I know it’s easier said than done but that’s the only thing you, your team and management will appreciate in long run.

    All you need to do is walk by their offices all the time when you're at work.
