2018

"The pay here is very good."
First year trainee, London
"The pay for trainees is good. My only issue is that it's not made particularly clear how evaluations are linked to bonuses."
First year trainee, London
"We get paid one of the highest trainee starting salaries. There's a good range of benefits available and you get plenty of information about the financial connotations of each one."
First year trainee, London
"Trainee salaries are top end, but there aren't bonuses to reward those who have achieved more. New qualifier base salaries are mid-tier, though bonuses appear to vary. Base salaries could be expected to be higher as Bakers sees itself as top-tier. The bonus structure is not immediately transparent either, especially to trainees."
Second year trainee, London

"The salary is up there with all the big City firms, but the bonuses are not tremendous, (averaging 3%)."
Second year trainee, Brussels
"Salaries are on par with everyone else and the additional benefits (subsidies, services, etc.) are great, but the bonus was a bit of a letdown."
First year trainee, London
"Pay is competitive - bonus is a nice extra but no one really thinks about it too much on a junior level because it's very small."
Second year trainee, London
"As trainees at Baker & McKenzie we get good pay. The 3K sign on bonus was unexpected but very much appreciated."
First year trainee, London
"Pay is good and about average/on par with firms of this size within the City."
