"We're in a great location and have great offices on the river."
First year trainee, London
"The office building is very impressive and in a good location. The offices themselves are comfortable and we have lots of IT resources to draw on. Some facilities, such as the bike shed and showers, are shared with other companies in the building and so tend to be busy but are, at least, available. The dress code is smart office wear but we have recently started to have dress down Fridays."
Second year trainee, London
"The office is very nice and in a very cool building right on the river in Blackfriars. Being with Unilever also has its perks. There are several kitchen areas with lots of biscuits and coffee. It would be nice to have a proper canteen, not just the cafe downstairs. The dress code is formal but not too formal and, unless you are going into a client meeting, jackets and ties are not generally required. Most women do not wear heels everyday and there is also dress down Friday, which is much more relaxed."
First year trainee, London
"It's a modern office behind a stunning stone facade opposite Blackfriars station. It would be great if we had access to a gym in the building as there isn't really time to go to the gym over lunch. Rumour has it that we will be increasing our office space later this year when we reclaim some of the space subleased to the Royal Academy. The dress code has been relaxed in the last year so there's no need to wear ties to client meetings and we can dress down on a Friday. It would be great if we could dress down every day like some firms permit as most of our clients are quite casually dressed."

"An amazing office in the City. Dress code generally does not require ties, but smartens up for clients. Probably one of the smarter firms in the City."
First year trainee, London
"Great building. Good location overlooking the river. Ties only required for client meetings."
Second year trainee, London
"Great location with views of the Thames. Good space, although the firm is growing so rapidly that sometimes there are three to a room."
Second year trainee, London
"The location and architecture of the office is great, as are the facilities. Some internal offices don't have windows, which is a downside. The dress code is professional."
First year trainee, London
"Computer network can be a bit temperamental at times. Client meeting rooms are nice (although art work could be more colourful). We need more space as meeting rooms are often fully booked. The Unilever building is both classic on the outside and modern on the inside. We have access to the Unilever shop, which sells exceptionally cheap cosmetics, washing powder and Ben & Jerry's ice cream."
London
"Lovely offices (stunning building etc), but getting a bit cramped now as we are recruiting more people."
First year trainee, London
