It would be great if somebody who currently works in an investment bank graduate scheme could tell me a bit more about the general trend in terms of taking holidays. (in the UK) I’m not talking about front office roles, I’m talking middle and back office.
Do graduates get annual leave? For example, would it be possible for me to visit my family abroad for say a couple of weeks in a year?
I’ve been told that leave is frowned upon and that even if you have 28 days holiday entitlement, people don’t usually take it.
Is this true?
