    I’m fortunately not in the particular position you describe. I feel very appreciated at my job, so when I get asked for something, I try to do what I can.

    On the other hand, if I didn’t feel appreciated, I’m likely the kind of person that would say, “I’ll get to it on my own time,” or, “I can finish this tonight, but I won’t be in tomorrow.” I don’t think I’d be around very long in that sort of environment, however.

    I am the magical data fairy of my research group. This is probably going to be my Halloween costume… It’s very problematic, because this year, my advisor has spent so much time forcibly sidetracking me that I’m feeling very behind on my main projects. Unfortunately, my chain of command is pretty much him, so my options are somewhat more limited than in an industrial context.
