I will be joining MS next month and was wondering what an example of a daily work schedule is. Is it 9 to 5 or something similar?

I'll be in the dynamics365 org if it makes any difference.

    Come in at 10:30am, grab your coffee. 11:00am check email and chat with teammates about what movie you watched on Netflix. 12:00pm lunch until 1:30pm. Check email again, then catch up on daily news and social media feeds. 3pm, time to get afternoon coffee and snack. 3:30 check up on teammates. 4:00 check email again. 4:30pm go home to avoid rush hour.

      Why do you work so hard. Sounds toxic competitiveness to your team members.

      Sounds good, I’ll leave at 4pm and only check email twice a day instead.

    Well it really depends on you what hours you want to work. Nobody is going to tell you to come to work at certain time or leave at certain time.
    If you just want to cruise through year after year, you can do that with average pay for a few years. you don't meet the expectations, they'll just pip you out.
    Now how much time you need to get the job done is totally up to you. Some ppl can finish up things in 3 hrs. Others need more than 18.
    But typically for an average person, you don't really need to put in long hours. Wlb is pretty good.

    Depends a lot on the team and how much are you willing to commit.

    I've seen people who do 10:30 am (right at the scrum time) - 5 pm, others who do 7 am - midnight and weekends, even within the same team.

    In general its pretty easy to chill out if you choose to, unless you're in a bad on-call team kind of situation.
