"My hours are very flexible. Sometimes I work 10.00 am – 7.00 pm and others it's just 10.00 am – 4.00 pm depending on the day. Then there are days when I have the typical 9.00 am – 6.00 pm hours if I have to work with a customer or there are team meetings. If I work overtime I'm allowed to get the time back so, if I work late, I can just take the next morning off."
Midlevel, Reading
"The work hours are fine but there is always the tendency to work after hours and answer emails on weekends, especially when you are given work phones, laptops/surfaces. Being logged into Skype allows people to see when you are online."
