"The offices are generally fitted out to a high standard and in central locations with good public transport provisions. The Birmingham office does struggle for car parking, which can be problematic if several team members need to be out on site during the course of the day. The dress code is smart business attire and wearing a tie is encouraged but not mandatory."
Graduate, Birmingham
"We have offices across the country/globe with two in London. The London offices are very different with people often choosing their career progression over which office they prefer. The City office is well located within the City with superb facilities whereas the Hill St office is located in central Mayfair in a period house that has a more relaxed, warm and friendly feeling."
Graduate, London
"My office space is outdated but this varies from office to office."
Graduate, Ipswich
"The office's space, locations and facilities are adequate. The dress code is smart business attire."
Graduate, London
"Our West End office is in a great location, although a little run down. The dress code is formal so you must be smart but the details are dependent upon your team."
Graduate, London
"We have a modern office and a smart casual dress code. There's a warm working environment."
Graduate, Canbridge
"I think the office will need to get bigger as the company expands. Parking is not ideal but it's good that we have parking for fee earners in a city-centre location. We're very close to a station with easy access to London in 35 minutes. There's also a small shower room. Being in a listed building has pros and cons as it has great character but an unusual layout."

"The Birmingham office is in an ideal location in the business district of the city. We are positioned next door to Birmingham Snow Hill train station and are within walking distance to the shopping centres, restaurants, bars and other amenities."
Graduate, Birmingham
"We have a really good canteen on the top floor, which is great for breakfast and cheaper than Pret. The offices are really well located in the city. The dress code is smart, especially if you are meeting clients, but we have dress down Fridays!"
Graduate, London
"Location is perfect for real estate, right in the middle of the City square-mile. A combination of the bank and the real estate part of the bank take up approximately 8 – 10 floors of the office. We have meeting rooms with superb views on the 17th floor and a deli on the 18th. Dress code is smart."
Graduate, London
"The Birmingham office is newly refurbished and is a lovely place to work. We also have a clear-desk policy so every morning when you arrive everything looks organised and professional. A lot of training takes place in the London office, which has an amazing view!"
Entry level, Birmingham
"Client entertainment spaces are very impressive. Dress code is smart all week."
Graduate, London
"We have just had our office refurbished and the paperless environment is brilliant. Dress code is formal."
Entry level, Birmingham
"Being in the city is unusual for a real estate firm. The offices are larger and there is more space and more people. Showers mean that you can cycle/run to work and change before you get to your desk. Likewise, you can bring a change of clothes for going out after work or playing sport. There's a breakout room with tables and chairs to sit and have catch-ups with work colleagues away from your desk so you don't disturb others. Free water, coffee, tea and hot chocolate is always nice to have. Several meeting rooms on each floor as well. These have recently been refurbished. On our top floor (18th) there is a cafeteria for the whole building, this is useful and has nice views of the City of London. On the 17th is the company's corporate meeting rooms. These are where meetings for a larger number of people are held (full team meetings) and also where client meetings are held. Assessment centres, the monthly company drinks and other events are held here – even external ones."

"Offices are open, light and modern. Amenities include an on-site restaurant, bike storage and shower facilities."
Consulting, Midlevel, London
"Smart offices and fairly good facilities based in the heart of the City. Smart business dress code."
Graduate, London
"The office is right in the centre of Birmingham and features a good open-plan office space."
Graduate, Birmingham
"The office location is amazing. The meeting rooms on the 17th floor give you an amazing view of London. Though, I'm not too keen on working in an open space."
Graduate, London
"The only downside to the London office is being in the City not the West End. Apart from that they are very good offices with fantastic views."
Graduate, London
"The office space in Birmingham isn't the most modern but the location is very good. The dress code in the office is generally quite good. Some are very smart, others slightly less so."
