I am more familiar with S&T jobs where you have to be at the desk all the time during the hours of 6am - 4pm, give or take. You basically have no time to go off the desk and do w/e. However, in banking, is this also the case? I know that you basically are playing a waiting game until you get work later in the day (usual case) a lot of the time. If you leave the desk for an hour or so to get lunch or to do w/e, will people care / notice, even if you always do your work well and on time?
I'm just curious what the culture on this issue is in banking.
