Report answer

Hours depend upon department. Overall the firm expects you to stay and “always be on and available”. If you leave work at 6 you should not have to respond to emails at 10 PM and be on conference calls with overseas offices at that time Turned into a 24/7 job
Management expects this.

Some will do 9-5 but if you have aptitude, and there are many clever successful people here who do, you will be asked to take on much more for responsibilities, which means you will work late hours.
