The work environment for science professionals varies according to the specialty. Typically Doctors are placed in hospitals, Pharmacist in retail pharmacy or hospital, Astrologist in research organisation, Bio-technicians and Bio- chemist in laboratories etc. the time period and salary varies with the expertise and time required. The professions of humanities would often require collaboration with many other professionals.

The professions in the arts industry such as writer, dancer, photographer, are not time oriented jobs. They are always at work. The lawyers, translators, etc. might have to adjust their work schedules based on their clients convenience, demands and requirements and the incomes are directly related to performance.
