Perks

2017

"There's a great bar area and Spitalfields is a wonderful place to work."
Second year trainee, London
"You get a free day of holiday if you move house. There's also a good pension and lots of group and firm-wide social events."
Second year trainee, London
"We have a free gym and squash courts and get one day off for moving."
First year trainee, London
"We have a sauna in the basement."
Second year trainee, London
"The relocation benefits are awesome! If you decide to qualify outside of London then the firm really helps you with everything including hiring real estate agents who will drive you around the city of choice, advising on different areas to live or negotiating your lease on your behalf. You will get a relocation bonus and often a free service apartment for a month before you sign your lease. There's additional holiday available if you work hard and a good dinner allowance (at least in London)."
Second year trainee, London but currently on an international secondment
"The on-site rooftop bar and restaurant are really nice and subsidised."
First year trainee, London
"Dinner is paid for by the client after 7.30 pm and taxis are provided after 9.30 pm. The terrace is pretty nice in summer with a Friday lunch BBQ most weeks. There is a concierge website service you can sign up to for free, but I've never used anything on it."
First year trainee, London
"The food in the canteen is really nice and there's free dinner and taxis if you work the evening. The office bar, Lavanda, has cheap drinks, great pizza and an amazing terrace with views across the City. There's a free gym and health centre downstairs including a GP, nurse, physio and beautician etc. The location near Shoreditch/Spitalfields is great for food and drinks and after-work entertainment. The secondment opportunities and moving day allowance are fantastic too."
Second year trainee, London

2016

"The Lavanda restaurant, which is subsidised and of very good standard. Also the summer BBQs organised on the Lavanda's terrace when the weather allows it."
Second year trainee, London
"The firm supported me to move from overseas by covering my flight, providing temporary accommodation and shipping my possessions over to the UK. Ready access to medical services is very convenient given the hours we work. Opportunities like free tickets arise on an ad hoc basis."
Second year trainee, London
"Free gym in the basement of the building with free classes. Good pension, good maternity leave, season ticket loan, wide choice of food available in the staff canteen at very reasonable prices. 20% discount at Konditour and Cook!"
First year trainee, London
"We have a bar on the roof. The novelty is yet to wear off."
First year trainee, London
"Free dinner after 7.30 pm. Free taxi after 9.00 pm. Free gym and health centre, which are both excellent. One day off (in addition to your annual holiday allowance) if you move house."
First year trainee, London
"Taxis after 9.00 pm, free dinners after 7.30 pm (which is standard I suppose). There are often post-closing drinks and dinners, firm summer BBQs and balls. GPs in the building, indoor three-a-side football pitch, solid gym. The bar (Lavanda) has got to have one of the best rooftop drinking areas in the City."
First year trainee, London
"We have an extremely good medical, pension, and health-care package as well as free tickets for events. You get free dinners if you work after 7.30 pm and a free taxi home after 9.00 pm. There's a high-quality canteen on-site (as well as a gym, a bar, and two rooftop gardens)."
First year trainee, London

2015

"Getting free evening meals and taxis home (when working late) is nice. Occasional ex-gratia days off (e.g. January 2nd) are also welcome as are moving days. Equally our onsite facilities (e.g. gym and massage!) are great. However, in my opinion at least, the bar and roof terraces are the highlight."
Second year trainee, London
"We get free dinners if working past 7:30pm and free taxis home if working past 9:30pm"
Second year trainee, London
"The office facilities are first-rate. The canteen is good, the coffee shop/bar is great. Roof terraces are lovely. The services on site from dry cleaning to a beautician are really useful! And the support staff are fantastic."
First year trainee, London
"Taxis and dinner are provided if you work late. Regular social events inter-department, firm-wide and amongst the trainee intake. Great view for the roof terraces - accessed via the in-office (subsidised) bar."
First year trainee, London
"The best perk is having access to an amazing roof terrace with a heavily subsidised bar."
Second year trainee, London
"Perks include a free onsite gym and free dinner and free taxis if you have to work late."
Second year trainee, London
