How flexible is your company when it comes to hours?

Generally 9-6.30, but when you are busy you are expected to work all hours including weekends to get the work done.

The hours can be long when matters get busy however the partners are flexible regarding out of work commitments and if you are alert people to your commitments they will attempt to work around you.

On average, I would finish between 6-8pm most nights. The hours are longer than public sector work, but not too stressful. Allens is very flexible regarding working from home, sometimes I have left earlier to have dinner at home and start working again afterwards.

You need to be in the office for most of the day. There's no problem with ducking out for an hour for certain things. There are late nights on occasion. I usually start around 845, nobody cares.

My hours are pretty reasonable. I do the odd late evening, but most days are reasonable. If I'm on top of what I need to do, there is no one checking my clock.

Much more flexible than I might have expected, but still not as flexible as I would like. I'm very happy to work hard, but that isn't the problem - the only way to progress your career in this industry as a young person is to be seen to be working hard, getting involved, being engaged with the team - and that simply isn't going to happen if you try "working from home", "flexible working hours", etc. There is a mismatch between the amount of "actual work" I do, and the amount of hours I spend in the office in order to be seen as "doing something".

My hours are varied depending on the nature of the work. The firm is such where you can be there till midnight every night if you so chose or you could leave at 7pm. People have flexible arrangements working from home depending on their needs.

Very flexible - if you have completed your work / there is nothing to be done, happy for you to leave

It is easy to log in remotely from home and this is not discouraged
