The last two places I worked had unofficial policies that made it possible for me to take extra time off if I worked extra hours. Work the weekend, then take Friday off the following week, that kind of thing. Nothing official, but it worked out.
Current job has no such quid pro quo. If you work extra hours, you work extra hours. At the same time, I can simply tell my boss that I'm sneaking out early on a Friday, and I don't even have to give an excuse, he just tells me to have a nice weekend. So it cuts both ways a little bit, but the employer definitely gets more out of it than I do.
