Perks

2016

"We have a weekly cake trolley that comes round the firm on Friday afternoons. Usually, most people gather to buy a cake and have a quick chat. If you're lucky enough to do a seat in the banking team, they have gin Fridays. The trainees in the team organise a drinks trolley to be delivered around 4.30 pm. This occurs about once a month or if there's been a particularly notable completion."
