Working Hours at GlaxoSmithKline

How flexible is your company when it comes to hours?

There are times when I feel motivated to work harder and deliver above what would be expected. Ultimately I don't feel pressure to go beyond though at all. They take a pragmatically flexible approach and will always look to work towards a mutual win.

The company is very flexible with their work hours. Obviously it comes down to the individual manager. But as long as you do the 36 odd hours a week and get your work done, it doesn't really matter what times you come and go.
Intern, Melbourne
Flexible and understanding.

Work hours are generally 9am-5pm however most departments are happy if you want to start a little earlier or later. Company is generally flexible if you have an appointment as well.
Intern, Melbourne
I had the standard 9-5 work hours. The company really does cater to the employees needs e.g. working until 1:30 so that school pick-ups can be done, working from home is someone at home is sick, taking time off in lieu.
Intern, Abbotsford
This job is fulltime- 9-5, 5 days a week. However it was very flexible in terms of that if you came in earlier, you could leave earlier. Understandably there are occasions where you need to leave the office at earlier times for appointments and emergencies, and it does not get questioned which is great- you are able to do so.
Intern, Melbourne
9-5 sometimes 8-4
