Tell me about being a junior programmer at a hedge fund.

I recently graduated with a degree in Computer Science and am looking for a job in the financial industry. I'm not happy at my current job and was recently contacted by a recruiter who thinks that, based on my academic record, I should look at hedge funds. I've interned at a large investment bank before developing backoffice apps in Java and I was quite comfortable with it. How will working at a hedge fund be different from this? What is the typical working 'culture' like? What sort of projects can I expect to work on? How about hours and pay? This is in London, UK. Thanks!
