2016

"The pay is the same or similar to most of the similar size firms in Leeds (although one or two other firms pay slightly more). Trainees received a bonus last year."
Second year trainee, Leeds
"The pay is competitive and there is a transparent trainee bonus scheme in place."
First year trainee, London
"As a first seat trainee the pay is competitive. The firm does, however, need to consider increasing salaries for second year trainees and certainly new qualifiers."
First year trainee, London
"I think the pay is very good and I'm happy with it. It's a competitive salary given the number of different firms in Leeds."
First year trainee, Leeds
"Remuneration is ok, but there is an increasing gap between London and northern offices."
Second year trainee, Manchester
"Pay should be increased to be more competitive."
First year trainee, London
"The pay is lower than competitor firms in the Manchester market but the expected hours are much higher. The pay gap between London and the regions is too large and needs to be redressed."
Second year trainee, Manchester
"Salary is below market in London."
Second year trainee, London

2015

"While I do think that the pay needs to be reviewed in light of the pay rises being applied across the market in order to bring the firm's pay in line, I find that the bonus structure is generally clear."
Second year trainee, London
"I think that the salary could be higher to reflect the firm's position as a market leader in Manchester. The bonus system is currently being worked on so it's probably not fair to comment on it at the moment."
Second year trainee, Manchester
"Trainee pay has not changed over the years, and as I feel that Manchester is becoming a hotspot for law, I would expect the pay to have increased by now."
First year trainee, Manchester
"I think that the salary is in line with the Manchester market, and although there hasn't been a bonus in a while, I know that trainees will be considered in the next round."
First year trainee, Manchester

2013

"The pay is at the top end for the Manchester market."
Second year trainee, Manchester
"I often feel like they will do what they can to avoid paying a bonus."
Second year trainee, Leeds
"The pay could be better and bonus is dependent on the firm reaching its target."
Second year trainee, London
