2014

"Taxis home after 10:00pm. And a £2000 interest free loan before you start - a life saver!!"
First year trainee, London
"The best perks come with helping out on the summer placement scheme - cookery classes, shard visits and great nights out."
First year trainee, Londn
"Free dinners in the canteen (so you don't have to have take out!) and taxis if you are working late on client matters. Good variety of overseas client secondments. The usual subsidised gym membership, etc."
First year trainee, London
"You can charge dinner to the client after 7:00pm and a taxi after 10:00pm - but I think this is fairly standard. I'd say having our own cafeteria in the building is a perk, but others would disagree with me. Oh and the subsidised gym membership is excellent. But I'm not sure our perks could be considered one of our selling points; there are certainly more at other firms."
