"Leeds is office-based. We are moving to a brand new office in late 2016, which will be open plan. Dress code is smart. However, suits are not required for women and men don't have to wear ties (unless they are going to a client meeting, for example). We also have dress down Friday every week."
Second year trainee, Leeds
"Nice and bright with outstanding food. Suit but no tie required for men. Dress down every Friday."
First year trainee, London
"Good offices and great location. Facilities could do with improving in areas. Dress code is good – ties not necessary unless meeting with clients and we also have an optional dress down Friday. During July and August we operate a 'dress for your day' policy."
First year trainee, London
"Dress code is business attire with dress down Fridays. The northern offices are moving into state of the art offices within the next eight months."
First year trainee, Leeds
"The office space is good. At the moment, it's all closed plan but we will be moving to new offices in November that are open plan. The location is a five minute walk from the city centre and close to the train station so it's easy to get to work in the morning. The facilities are OK. The IT systems are quite old so they can sometimes be frustrating when you need to complete important work. Dress code is quite relaxed. There is no need to wear a tie in the office (unless you're meeting clients). Every Friday is also dress down. It's smart casual but most come in jeans and a shirt or t-Shirt. Last December, it was dress down for the whole month."
First year trainee, Leeds
"Space, location and facilities are all very good. We have dress down Fridays (although it's always good to have a smart outfit with you in case you get pulled into a client meeting)."
Second year trainee, London
"At present the regional offices do not reflect the stature of the firm in those respective markets. However, this will change early next year when the Manchester and Leeds offices are moved to new buildings. The dress code is business but some teams are more relaxed than others. There is a dress down day every Friday, work permitting."

"The firm has spacious, well-appointed offices close to the centre of the City with good IT facilities, and a pleasant working environment. Fridays are dress-down and wearing ties is not compulsory except for client contact."
First year trainee, London
"I find that the offices are very nice, and the canteen is particularly smart. Dress code is normally business attire, although ties are not expected unless you have external meetings. We also have dress down Fridays."
Second year trainee, London
"The offices are based in great locations and have all the facilities you need. The Leeds office will be relocating to Three Sovereign Square in late 2016."
First year trainee, Leeds
"Despite the current office being a little outdated, we are moving into brand new offices next year, and this will address this issue."
First year trainee, Leeds
"Personally I believe that the Manchester office is in need of an update, but it is still clean and tidy. The location is good and there are beautiful views of the city."
First year trainee, Manchester
"Although the management are looking to move to new offices; I think that the Manchester office is in a great location. The dress code is normal business attire Monday to Thursday, but ties are only a must for client meetings, and there are dress down Fridays."
First year trainee, Manchester
"The offices are open plan which I found took some time to get used to, but overall they are good. There is a canteen and a Costa within the office. While there is not a gym in the office there are many close by. Dress code is standard business attire with dress-down Friday."

"It's not the most glitzy modern office but it's great in that we are the only firm in it and have a lot of space for events, etc!"
First year trainee, Leeds
"The offices are very nice. Manchester is the oldest of the three however. As for dress code it is business dress but not too formal (no one wears a tie unless they are meeting a client)."
Second year trainee, Manchester
"A smart dress code is encouraged."
Second year trainee, Leeds
"The Leeds office is old fashioned in some respects but it was purpose built and has character which some modern offices do not have. The central atrium is a great place to eat lunch and relax away from your desk."
Second year trainee, Leeds
"Lovely office and the canteen is beyond amazing. The dress code is smart but there's no need to walk around in your suit jacket everyday (perhaps a little more relaxed for girls than guys)."
First year trainee, London
"The office is smart and impressive to clients, facilities are good - basement with bike racks and good lockers/showering facilities. The dress code is smart."
