Work life balance varies depending on what department you work in. It does exist in 8 months out of the year. These months are known as non-quarter end months. In this period, employees work an 8-5, Monday – Friday schedule. During these months you are free to request as much time off as you’d like, provided that you have accrued it. Contrarily, in quarter end months (Feb, May, Aug, and Nov) also known as black out months, employees are expected to be available to work the entire month, including weekends. Despite how it may appear, employees are taken care of well during quarter end with lots of overtime pay, catered food, work-at-home opportunities, etc.
