Anywhere from 6:00 - 7:30 (Depends on if I'm going to the gym)

Email from home in the morning til about 9-9:30, arrive at office 10-1030,
stay til 530-645

Meetings with other side of the world start at 9:30 PM, sometimes till
midnight
Adjust schedule based on whether or not there were meetings and length of
time spent on meetings

WFH one day per week, when I usually sleep til 8:30, transition to living
room and work 9-6 ish

We have a 50 hour work week, so time is a bit flexible as far as what's
done in office/at home. So really, I have no straight answer for you :)
