"The open-plan office encourages you to approach solicitors and partners for work. Feedback is usually good but it can take some chasing to get full feedback when teams are busy."
Second year trainee, Birmingham
"Informal training and mentoring is excellent. All senior members of staff and partners are very accessible and provide excellent and honest feedback."
Second year trainee, London
"Everyone is really accessible and happy to make time for you to discuss work. However, due to the business of the firm, it can sometimes feel like, perhaps, you are not getting as much supervision as you feel you need."
First year trainee, Nottingham
"Open-plan offices make people very accessible and everyone I have approached has been willing to assist."
Second year trainee, Birmingham
"I have had good experiences with solicitors and partners wanting to mentor me and help me to develop by providing constructive feedback. I've also been taken out for coffee/lunch to chat about my performance and development."
Second year trainee, Birmingham
"All individuals in the firm are accessible and it is good to learn from their experiences and knowledge. Supervision has been fantastic and always constructive to enable me to develop and learn to become more experienced in skills such as drafting, writing letters and speaking to clients on the telephone."
First year trainee, Nottingham
"I have been lucky in having good supervisors, from whom I have learned a great deal just from working alongside. I get an appraisal every three months and the mid-seat appraisal is a good chance to take stock of how things are going and set objectives for the remainder of your seat."
First year trainee, Nottingham
"From experience, the solicitors and partners are very accessible (not always in person but at least over email) and supportive. They're good at recognising contributions in matters and work."
First year trainee, Nottingham
