"The working hours are very much 9.00 am to 5.00 pm and you are encouraged to stick to this. There are occasions when you may have to stay a bit later but this is rare and not encouraged."
Graduate, Edinburgh
"I sometimes stay late but this is always by choice. Some people work from home on occasion and I've never had an issue with taking time off to go to the doctor or sort something out."

"Some teams have longer hours and less flexible working than others."
Graduate, Edinburgh
"Our core hours are 9.00 am to 5.00 pm with an hour for lunch and I have very rarely worked outside of these. I wouldn't say there is a huge amount of flexibility with hours, and there are limited opportunities to work from home too. Saying that, the company is taking steps to be more flexible and accommodating."
Graduate, Edinburgh
"I work 9.00 am to 5.00 pm mostly. There's no expectation of working late for the sake of it."

"Work hours are 9:00am to 5:00pm, but the general culture is to arrive a little early and leave a little late. This is very reasonable, and the company has been flexible with these timings. There are occasions when I have found it useful to spend more time in the office, but this has been for revision rather than daily tasks."
