"The hours are very long."
Investment Banking, Intern, London


"During my time, I started just after 7:00am, and finished between 6:00pm and 7:30pm. Work hours did vary depending on your desk allocation, and although these are clearly long hours, it seemed like a good balance between being pushed and challenged, and actually being able to get enough sleep to perform well."

Intern, London
"I think that RBC has very standard credit sales hours, nothing too strenuous. Typically, I started from 6:30am and worked until 7:00pm."
Intern, London
"The hours were the standard 9:00am to 5:00pm. Timings are not strict at all so they varied from day-to-day as long as the work gets completed."
Technology, Intern, London
"I found that working 8:30am to 6:00pm were very sociable working hours for operations. However, if you are in Global Markets or IB, unlike myself, then hours are can be longer."

Intern, London
