"Working hours can be long, but I think it is the average for the industry. Managers are very flexible and accommodating when it comes to personal commitments."
Strategy, Graduate, London
"As long as you finish the work that you need to do, it doesn't really matter how many hours you put in at the office. There is no face time culture. The nature of the work we do means that we do sometimes have to work long hours though."
Graduate, London
"Relatively flexible but as we work to hard deadlines and short time frames, work hours can be long at times."
Graduate, London
"Hours are long, but you can be proactive in crafting your days."

"Relatively flexible, but can be very long for short and busy projects."
Graduate, London
"It varies a lot. Some weeks are pretty tough, others are lighter. In general though, this is a long hours job and industry. However, compared to teaching (my previous job), there is more flexibility. You can manage work as you like as long as you can get it done – and I don't work weekends."

"My estimate on a work-week (gets better as you become more senior): Monday, Wednesday - 9:00am to 9:00pm; Tuesday - 9:00am to 11:00pm; Thursday - as late as it takes to get the job done; Friday - out of the office by 5:00pm. There is no work on a weekend. There is a good flexibility around coming late, working from home, etc. No 'face-time' culture."
Consulting, Midlevel, London
"Hours are not fixed, so there is flexibility. You only work to deadlines, so you can often work from home. The problem is that the double staffing model means you have a lot of work, so you are invariably putting in heavy hours."
Consulting, Graduate, London
"Hours can be very long during the week, but on the bright side, we are pretty strict about avoiding weekend work, which I really appreciate."
Graduate, London
"In my experience, hours are flexible so long as you give advance notification."
