2017

"Pay is in line with the market."
First year trainee, Manchester
"The pay is lower than many City firms, but the culture and work/life balance are worth the minor discrepancy."
Second year trainee, London
"It's comparatively low pay compared to peers and there are no bonuses for trainees."
First year trainee, London
"Pay is at the lower end of the scale but a couple of grand here and there isn't as important as other factors such as hours and culture."
First year trainee, London
"It's widely acknowledged that we're underpaid compared to our peers at similar firms. That said, compared to pretty much everyone in non-City jobs we're extremely well paid so it feels a little churlish to complain."
Second year trainee, London
"Clyde & Co's regional wage is often regarded as being slightly under that of international firms. However, in the context of work/life balance, I think it is generally fair."
Second year trainee, Manchester
"The pay is one of the lowest in the City. However, the hours tend to be better than other firms."
Second year trainee, London
"The trainee salary has not been raised in many years despite the firm expanding and opening more international offices than most firms. The trainee and associate salary is below the market standard and many other trainees at smaller firms are being paid a lot more than we are. Trainees do not get bonuses."
First year trainee, London

2015

"While the pay is not the highest, it is fair and competitive for the hours that I undertake."
First year trainee, London
"The salary is a fair reflection of the market and work/life balance."
Second year trainee, London
"I find that the salary is competitive, and that accommodation and flights are paid for when doing a seat abroad."
Second year trainee, London
"Personally, I do not feel that my salary reflects the hours that I am working."
First year trainee, London
"Understandably, there is no bonus for trainees, however the trainee salary hasn't changed in a number of years - and I see that the trainees are very aware of this."
First year trainee, London

2014

"I believe salary is in line with market rates and will go up with experience."
Second year trainee, London
"In my opinion Clyde & Co could improve when it comes to pay raises and bonuses."
First year trainee, London
"Pay is a trade off. You accept that you're never going to be paid what you can get elsewhere in City firms, but you are happy to take discrepancy to be able to do things in the week. No bonuses at trainee level."
First year trainee, London
"The pay is good given that the hours are typically shorter than at other City firms."
First year trainee, London
"Trainees salaries are quite good I feel, however, it appears that salaries at Junior Associate/Associate level could be higher considering the growth the firm has experienced."
First year trainee, London

2013

"The pay is competitive but could be a little higher. There are no bonuses for trainees."
First year trainee, London
"Pay is good at a trainee/NQ level but not good compared to other firms later on in your career. However the good work/life balance makes up for it. The process by which bonuses are awarded is transparent."
First year trainee, London
"Trainees are not eligible for bonuses. The salary here needs to be brought up to the level of other firms of a similar size."
First year trainee, London
"Slightly lower than comparable firms, no bonuses as a trainee."
First year trainee, London
"Not quite in line with some of the top British firms which isn't great given the quality of client and the reputation of the firm, but we are hardly underpaid!"
First year trainee, London
