"I work a solid 9.00 am – 5.00 pm. My employers are understanding if I want to go to the gym during lunch and have even scheduled meetings accordingly!"
Graduate, London
"Some roles are pretty much 9.00 am – 5.00 pm. I work 8.30 am – 7.30 pm. Investment scheme roles can be longer, but not comparable to investment banking."
Graduate, London
"I'm usually in 9.00 am – 5.30 pm although there are never any problems if you want to leave at 5.00 pm. This can vary between departments and business units. Flexible working hours are available on request."
HR, Graduate, London
"No complaints at all. There's no rigidity and you are allowed to take full responsibility for your hours as long as you get your job done. Very flexible regarding working from home etc."
Graduate, London
"Normal days are a relatively standard 9.00 am – 5.00 pm. I have worked much later when required (9.00 pm/10.00 pm some evenings) but this is by no means expected. Where necessary you have the ability to work from home, which is extremely useful. Hours are fairly rigid in general but there is flexibility if required."
Graduate, London
"My work hours are roughly 8.30 am until 5.30 pm. They vary at times so are not fixed. The hours are flexible, as long as you are able to get your work done."
Finance, Graduate, London
"Hours vary between teams but are reasonable across M&G. Different teams have varying levels of flexibility with many allowing employees to work from home."
Graduate, London
"Depends on department and managers but generally very good."

"M&G strongly encourages a good work/life balance, which is reflected in flexible working hours, which are not too long when compared to many other Financial Services firms."
Graduate, London
"Hours are team dependent - some teams work longer hours than others."
Graduate, London
"Difficult to answer, as there are many requirements which revolve around being in the office. However, there is certainly room for flexibility."
Entry level, London
"Technically my hours are 9:00am-5:00pm, but I get in and leave about 40 minutes earlier and later."
Graduate, London
"Usually 8:00am till 6:30pm, occasionally past 8:00pm. Very flexible - as long as you get the work done, nobody checks when you're in or out."
Graduate, London
"Usually the work hours are 9:00am-6:00pm. However I am content working longer hours due to the interesting and challenging work that is given to me. During quarter ends, work hours can increase, however it all comes down to productivity and planning ahead. The company is very flexible with work hours, especially during study leave periods."
Graduate, London
"The hours at M&G are excellent for a financial institution and we do not have the 'face-time' culture that other organisations have. You need to spend as much time as it takes for you do your work and you also can work from home if needs be."
Graduate, London
"Hours are highly variable depending on whether we have a deal on. Can make studying (CFA) and planning social life a challenge. Generally reasonable hours (8:30am-6:30pm)."
