How flexible is your company when it comes to hours?
Flexible with work from home options - like any law firm, sometimes the work just needs to be done.

I usually arrive at 8am and leave at 7pm. If you need to work late, you can take your laptop home and work from home.

I've never felt pressure to stay unreasonably late on a consistent basis in order to get work done. Everyone in the team is conscious of everyone else's health and well-being, and if you do feel swamped with work, senior personnel are always very approachable and willing to help properly manage workflows. Having said that, if you do want to work long hours, there is more than enough work for you to do if you choose. It's really up to you to decide what kind of career you want.

Hours can be long; standard finishing time may be around 7. But good perks if you stay late and also no need to be present if there's nothing to do.

Hours can be long when you are at the pointy end of a deal, but I would say overall less hours than some of my friends at other top tiers.

If there is no work on, generally hours are flexible, but if work need to be done it is expected that it will be prioritised

Fairly flexible. There is no culture of "face-time" or "punching in, punching out" - the emphasis is mainly on getting your work done. Of course, there will always be nights where you're working long hours, or days where you need to come in early. That comes with the territory of working in the legal industry.

We work long hours. there is no expectation to but given the amount of work that the firm gets, the hours do drag on.
Graduate, Melbourne
Highly varied - depends on the time of year and status of current deals. Expected to put in the hours when work is busy, but also not expected to stay at work when there is nothing to do - flexible in that sense taking into account work commitments. Flexible working is common, can also take work home if required (i.e. no requirement to physically be in the office at all times).
