I recently got a job at a well-established bank, and the work culture here is not what I expected. People are gone by 4:30 on Fridays, people take long lunches, and people are always wandering from office to office chatting. I came from a private company where everyone worked like slaves, and at the bank my bosses are always telling me to go home when I want to work late. I suppose I could slow things down, but I prefer a more dynamic environment. Besides, the bank can't fault me for working hard, can it? So should I keep working they way I like, or should I learn to embrace everyone's slacker ways?
