"There is a decent work/life balance. People are expected to do a normal 9.00 am – 5.00 pm but, on occasion, you can work from home."
Innovation, Graduate, London
"My employer is extremely flexible when it comes to hours, which means they get the best out of their employees. I tend to work from 8.45 am to 6.00 pm, which is very unusual for the financial sector."
Graduate, London
"For me it was pretty much a straight up 9.00 am – 5.00 pm each day. You are allowed to make your hours more flexible by starting any time from 8.00 am – 10.00 am and finishing 4.00 pm – 6.00 pm. The company is very good when it comes to working from home as well."
Graduate, London
"They're flexible if you need to work from home or go to the gym during lunch etc."
Graduate, lonon
"Hours are flexible if required – I work 8.30 am until 5.00 pm mostly. It can become difficult when studying for professional exams on the side and the evenings can be long. However, the hours are expected and can be managed."
Finance, Graduate, London
"Work hours are typically 9.00 am – 5.00 pm depending on what is going on. There's generally a good work/life balance providing you complete the work set. I regularly work later as my team has a large presence in the US."
Midlevel, London
"It can be flexible but depends on your team and manager – these fluctuate a lot."
Finance, Graduate, London
"Generally flexible. Working from home is possible but you are required to occasionally work quite late to accommodate colleagues in America."
Entry level, London

"The company is highly flexible. There is an expectation to be at work during core hours and an encouragement to do the normal seven hours + one hour for lunch; however if you get your work done, are there to talk to people who need you and talk to people when it's convenient for them, it doesn't really matter if you come in at 9:00am and leave at 3:00pm every now and then."
Graduate, London
"I manage a global proposition so can be on early morning calls with Asia or late night with the US. Often take work home, but this is specific to the role, not to the company."
Midlevel, London
"It depends on the department. Mine is very relaxed, changing hours of days, coming in later and leaving later is all fine. I don't think I am being monitored but I work the hours I'm meant to anyway."
Graduate, London
"The hours are extremely flexible. They are at the discretion of your individual manager. Usual hours of work range from 9:30am (to avoid the morning rush hour) and 5:30pm."
Graduate, London
"Working hours are generally 9:00am to 5:00pm. They are very flexible, and don't expect you to stay late, but just to work hard whilst you're at work."
Graduate, London
"The hours are very flexible and managers tend to be understanding. That being said, I don't mind working a lot of hours, so I may be biased."
Graduate, New York
"It is very flexible, some days I work from 10:00am to 6:00pm, and others from 9:00am to 5:00pm. It is not expected that you work longer than necessary. If you need to leave early for an appointment it's fine, just make sure you make up the time another day."
