Most analysts work full time. Approximately 33 percent of financial analysts worked more than 40 hours per week in 2014, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Analysts may need to work at night and on weekends to complete projects or meet deadlines. Most analysts work in typical office settings with access to the latest technology. Some large mutual fund companies offer perks such as on-site gyms, cafeterias, and child care. Many financial analysts enjoy the fast-paced, intellectually challenging work environment. This job can be stressful at times—especially if their investment recommendations cause financial losses for shareholders and the company. Analysts occasionally travel to industry conferences, to interview CEOs and chief financial officers at a company’s headquarters, and for other reasons.
