The best part about the City - work life balance. With 7.75 hours a day, you get to take every alternate Fridays off. Work culture is very self motivated i.e. if you are motivated enough to get something done then you take the initiative to get it done without the possibility of extra pay. As with every other job there are pluses and minuses. Talk to as many people as you can and create your own opinion about working for the City.
