"It depends where you are, but in the transactional departments it can be pretty bad. Sometimes people have had to work a bit during their holidays (though this does depend on the department and when you are on a busy deal) and some weekend work is expected."
First year trainee, London
"Very flexible in my department – you decide your own hours (within reason)."

"I work fairly unpredictable hours."
First year trainee, London
"The start time is pretty flexible - people tend to arrive between 9:00an and 9.45am. Your finishing time depends on client need but there is no face-time culture."
First year trainee, London
"There is no face-time. You can go home when you have finished your work and you are treated like an adult. The hours are as expected for a City firm and certainly no worse than anywhere else."
Second year trainee, London
"My hours have been varied based on the deals I have worked on. I haven't worked consistently long hours, but on occasions I have finished as late as 1am. The firm allows working from home though it is unlikely for trainees to do this. Start time is anything between 8am and 10am. I'm yet to leave before 6pm."
First year trainee, London
"Hours are naturally very unpredictable. Core hours would be 9-7 but can be more and you usually don't know when you'll be able to leave the office as things come up unexpectedly. In my experience, People are very understanding if you have important prior commitments every now and then."
First year trainee, London
