Work from home at least once a week (can be on higher side too).

Otherwise:

Commute Distance: 34 Kms each way
Start time: Between 12:00 and 13:00 Hours (commute time of 75 minutes)
Return time: Between 21:00 and 1230 Hours (commute time of 60-70 minutes(

Been this was since the last 5.5 years and I am happy.

But traffic bottlenecks have increased in the past with some new additions:

Hebbal Flyover being the latest one!

I started working for a European client since April of this year.

Right now, I reach the office by 11:30 AM & leave the office sharp at 8:30 PM.

That way I encounter less traffic, makes the commute less stressful.

Earlier, working for the usual IT companies, I used to maintain a strict 9-6 life.

Absolutely no stretching, no working late.

Lot of you working from noon/afternoon to night/latenight here. how come?

My hours used to be (once upon a time):
Start at: 7.15am (office bus) & reach work at Ecity before 8.30
Reach back at: 9:30pm or 10:15pm (office bus - depending on whether I took the bus at 8.30 or 9.30).
Traveling on my own - typically left home at 8am & reached by 9pm

For past 5 years:
Start: 8.30am & reach by 9:15am
Reach: 8.30pm (leave work by 7-7.30pm).

I just wonder why I worked soo much now :(

Lot of long hour workers here.
I'm in BD, so no fixed hours for me. Automatically signed in and out for the day unless on leave.
Now in a PSE, so on in-office days, its out at 5:50 pm, and for the first time in my life, the office is close enough to get home by 615.
Am loving this after 5 years of commuting between mayur vihar and Gurgaon.
