Not trying to be mean here but this sounds like a very relaxed workload. It's a mere 9 or so hours, even at internships I had to do pretty much 50% more, so I think it's easily possible to squeeze in some work. You could simply stay a few extra hours in the office and then study at your desk while your colleagues are gone. I think this is easier than to force yourself back to studying after doing sports, commuting home, eating dinner etc.if you're working those types of hours doing anything less than something you love, or making short of 300 g's, i say it's not worth it, and you're being badly used.oh, and i'm an engineer -- i have to bill all my hours to client projects, clients expect results and there are never enough hours at work, so i'm sort of screwed with the study at work bit.I say, quit your job, and work part time, or go back to schcool full time, or find some job you love, because there is no way to accomplish something outside of work while working full time unless you're truly exceptional (as in mike burry or albert einstein -- both successfully studied part time)Do you have a choice?If you don't come from a really rich, really well-connected background then you basically must work really hard to accomplish something. So if I tell [insert top-tier bank here] that I'd be available from 9-5 then they will probably just be like "Bye! Have a nice day. See ya... never". My hope is that once you become more senior you can work less, but basically every first job guy i know (not saying entry level here even though for most PhD guys the associate job they tend to get is actually their first job) works around the clock.you make working as a quant seem like the acme of pleasure and satisfaction!
