Would you work harder for no credit?

If you were a salaried employee and your work is just over whelming you with work and you are already working 50 hours a week and you know that even if you finish everything because of the way the company judges its employees that you will not be recognized for all the hard work you do would you work even more hours or would you just continue working the 50 only knowing that extra effort will not be recognized?

I would not work even more hours. No way! What would be the point? The least the company could is recognize you. I wouldn't put up with it. I would get out of there as soon as possible. I definitely wouldn't do more work so that my boss could get all the credit. I would do my job and that is it. A company should give you credit for your work, even if it's not money. It could just be an acknowledgement.

I would work as hard as possible during normal work hours and work a few extra hours but I would not kill myself if it was never going to be recognized I would probably spend time putting in some effort to find a better place to work, but then again these are scary times, so I would likely have another job lined up before leaving the one that I have.

If i couldn't get a better job elsewhere, i would continue to work in the same company.The reason being alternate employment is difficult to get.But if the years of hard work i have put in results in the possibility that i may get a good job elsewhere i would quit and seek better opportunities.Without recognition and reward for my effort i personally wouldn't continue in the same place.Though i wouldn't recommend the same to others if they are financially hard pressed.
