"Lockheed offers a 9/75 working schedule. What that means is that we do 75 hours a fortnight spread over nine working days with every other Friday off. You are able to work from home and can very easily mould your working hours around other commitments in your life."
Graduate, Havant, UK
"There's some flexibility but the opening hours of the office somewhat dictate the hours to be worked."
Graduate, Gloucester
"We get every other Friday off, which is very good! Some managers are more flexible and, if you need to leave early one day, you can make the time up another day but this is between the employee and manager."
Graduate, Ampthill - Bedfordshire
"Flexibility is based on manager preferences. The company works on a nine-day fortnight where employees work longer days Monday to Thursday and then one Friday is shorter and the other Friday in the fortnight is a non-working Friday."
Graduate, Ampthill
"While the company does not operate a 'clock-in' system, each member of permanent staff is contracted to work for a set amount of hours each day. In the event of personal circumstances, or just unforeseen events (heavy traffic), managers tend to be very understanding and accommodating. Every second Friday is given as time off. This does not affect an employee's annual leave and is a very popular arrangement."
Graduate, Ampthill
