Our expert says:
Sounds like the workload I carried for much of my life, without ever seeing such a large salary ( gosh, I wonder whether in my whole career I earned as much as Habe does in a year ); but I understand your concern. It will be reassuring to many citizens to know there is a government department where people work so hard and long, even though it is not fair to you for such a workload to be constant.
Gogga's comments make sense. YOu are probably carrying the weight of work others haven't bothered to do, and rushing towards crisis deadlines what should not have been necessary had the whole enterprize been properly planned and run.
Romany's point about a Job Description is also important. If "overtime is built into the package" then this should be totally explicit and included in the job description. And of course it's nonsense to call people "lazy" for complaining of unreasonable chronic work hours. Sounds like your managers ( presumably even better paid ( and do they work the same hours ? If not, why not ? ) are busy passing the buck.
