"When signing up to work at any US or magic circle firm in the City, you have to know that it will occasionally involve some long hours. The hours are longer in some departments than others but, in general, the firm is very busy and we work hard as a result. The long hours are not necessarily as bad as they sound. The longest week I've had so far was as part of my training contract and was also the most enjoyable! I was right in the thick of a major piece of work for one of our biggest clients and it was exciting to be involved and follow all the little twists and turns!"

"There are occasional late nights but I am generally able to leave around 7.30 pm, which I find very reasonable."
