Office life in big cities

Monday, September 13th, 2010

In large cities like Moscow, Saint-Petersburg, Novosibirsk and some others exceeding 1 mln inhabitants a lot of people every day go to their offices.

Normally, the working day at the office starts at 8, 9 or 10 o’clock in the morning. The working day is 8 hours + 1 hour for going out for dinner. So, those who start at 8 can leave office at 17.00, those who start at 9 o’clock – usually leave for home at 18.00, and those who arrive at office at 10 can only leave it at 19.00.

As for me, I usually start at 10 o’clock and leave at 19.00, sometimes, if I miss my dinner I leave earlier. I am very lucky to work in a office building that is only 2 minutes away from the nearest metro (subway) station – I do not spend my time in traffic jams which became a very usual thing for Saint-Petersburg.
