Working Hours at Henry Davis York

How flexible is your company when it comes to hours?

From what I understand, the company is flexible when it comes to working hours, especially at more senior levels.

The company is very flexible with work hours. It is also possible to work from home (if the nature of the work allows).

You need to do the hours required to do your job. If you need a longer lunch break or to arrive late for some reason, no one really blinks as long as it does not interfere with the work product

Work hours have been good, particularly whilst I am studying my college of law. I have the flexibility to manage both responsibilities.

Hours are absolutely flexible, and the firm will do all it can to accommodate any needs. However, when there is a lot of work on, the hours can get long - but it's all part of the job.

Work hours are presently very long due to slight short-staffing of mid-level lawyers. The company encourages reduced working hours, however, this is not always possible due to staffing levels and annual leave.

For a law firm I believe that the firm I work at is reasonable in terms of hours. A standard day is 8.30am to 6.30pm. However when it is busy I am expected to work late nights (past 10pm) and weekends.

As a part-time employee finishing my studies, my employer has been very flexible in fitting my work around my changing timetable and allowing me time off for exams.
Graduate, Sydney
Very flexible. However, when there is work to be done, in your direct team or another team within the firm, there is an expectation that you will help out where possible.
Intern, Sydney
Relatively flexible, however client demands do mean you need to be in the office for most of the standard business hours.
Graduate, Sydney
I work between 50 and 70 hours per week.
Midlevel, Sydney
They are pretty usual hours for a law firm of this nature, however, they rarely (if every) reach the crazy hours that you hear of top law firms.

I have flexible work hours that I can change around my Uni timetable.

Your hours depends on who you work for and what degree of involvement you want. Being in law generally necessitates longer hours.
Graduate, Sydney
Work hours are as expected in a market-leading law practice, but there is no expectation that you "have to be there for the sake of it".
