    Bad boss, bad management skill, did not get paid for overtime even if it was mentioned on my contract, than got blamed that I have not finished my job in time.

    Manage your middle management people such as team manager. Some of them are quite useless on managing skill. and if you do not have enough budget for overtime pay, say that in contract.
