"The standard hours in my department are 7.00 am to 6.00 pm or 8.00 am to 7.00 pm. However, you are expected to stay late sometimes and work some Saturdays."
Graduate, London
"The hours are very flexible and easy going. We do work long hours in comparison to other sectors but BlackRock is one of the best companies in terms of flexibility and working hours for the finance industry."
Graduate, London
"I work from about 8.30 am to 5.00 pm but more during month-end and busier periods. The work/life balance varies between teams but is good for me. My department has not been flexible with hours. I have asked to work from 8.00 am to 4.40 pm in order to get the earlier train but this was refused."
Finance, Graduate, Edinburgh
"I work about ten hours per day (nine on a Friday). I think it is quite reasonable for the industry and managers are good about being flexible when it comes to appointments and needing to work from home for some reason."
Entry level, London
"My employer trusts me in doing my job and does not hold me to a set timeframe. However, there were times when I had to stay longer to finish the work assigned. Time management is crucial in this job."
Graduate, London
"My employer is very flexible on my working hours so long as I am delivering on time and getting my work done."
Technology, Graduate, London
"The company is very flexible so long as you do your work well and show that you're proactive with asking for more work."
Graduate, London
"The company is pretty flexible with letting you leave early for appointments or trains and we have an unlimited holiday policy so we can take off all the time we need to work hard."
