Question to all the Devs out there.....

What do you prefer???
A. Strict timing in the office (e.g. 9-6)
B. Deadline focused work any hours you want and beat the deadline.

    I will work with strict timing 8-5 but personally I would prefer deadline focused work. But since I will start working for the first time in August I didn‘t have the option to choose.

    A relaxed combination of them both.
    Deadlines will be deadlines, but having the flexibility to adjust which 8 hours of the day I work is nice too.

    Like I'm working now:
    fixed deadlines and flexible hours of work, even tho, they're not completely flexible, but I can deal with it, I mean, I start working at 10am

    I'm fine with our 8-16 work. It gives a "now I work" and "now I am off work" switch

    a mix of both?

    Flextime with core office hours (e.g. 10-15 and 3h to spent freely)?

    @sbiewald yeah. Something like that. So there will be some time when anyone you would need is present in the office.

    - Flexible schedule, up to 7 or 8 hours a day.(whatever is the rule in your country. Over here is 8 hours. More than that is considered over-time, more than 10 is illegal, but nobody actually pays attention to that)

    - Proper planning so there's no need for "crunch time" to hit a deadline.

    But my current situation is a massive quality of life upgrade: Remote freelancing on a 25 hours/week retainer, no schedule. Making more than I'd make as a full-time employee locally.

    I had only ever worked 9-5. Recently my organisation started doing “summertime hours” which is 8.30-5.30 Monday to Thursday and 9-12 on a Friday. This is only for the summer months (June, July and August). It works pretty well and allows us to have a longer weekend through the summer.

    Strict timing 12-14

    I prefer 8-3.30. With flexibility like 9-4.30 if I want to.

    A. Is nice as it gives me a life to enjoy.

    B. Probably means I'll have a job to come back to on Monday !

    Hard to enjoy life without a job..

    So I guess if you can keep hopping from A to A, and never run out, you can enjoy your life !
