It's generally the opposite over here in India. Programmers are made to work long hour, and everyone is surprised if they are seen leaving the office on time.

 

It's like the old joke:

One day a fellow programmer came one hour late to work, said nothing just sat down and started coding. Nobody said anything but everyone was gossiping and giving him bad looks. When he started packing his stuff one hour earlier one of the guys just exploded: "What? You came late and now you're trying to leave earlier? What's wrong with you?!?!". And the guy says: "Sorry, I forgot to tell you I'm on vacation..."
