"Bonus structure is good, but the pay is a little below the rest of the City."First year trainee, London
"When the hours are good, the pay is great. If extremely busy periods are going to become increasingly common, it would be nice to get a bit more of a bonus."Second year trainee, London
"We don't have billable targets and related bonuses. It makes for a good ethos at the firm I think. I like this. The pay is still competitive with other similar firms, but it certainly isn't the same level as magic/silver circle firms. However, you get a life to accompany the pay, which I think is worth it. Associates sometimes seem less happy with this."Second year trainee, London
"Firm offers a discretionary bonus, which is at the same percentage of salary for all staff (including support staff) based on the firm's performance over the year, plus £600 at Christmas. It's a nice gesture and very much appreciated. We also don't work the obscene hours that lawyers at other firms work."London
"Bonuses are awarded to the entire firm in the same way, rather than being determined based on billable hours or other individual parameters."First year trainee, London
"Happy with the level of pay."First year trainee, London
