"The general office space is nice if not spectacular. The client suites are fantastic. Dress code is fairly casual, I keep a tie in my drawer but don't need one on at all times. There is a monthly dress down day."
First year trainee, London
"The Cardiff office is the second largest office in the firm and is a fantastic space to work in. Its open plan floor space and floor to ceiling windows give great light throughout, and the office has recently been renovated so it feels fresh and modern. We have meeting rooms available on every floor, on both sides of the building, in addition to a large number of conference rooms. We also have an onsite cafeteria. We even receive surveys asking what can be done to improve the working environment."

"Our London office is great. We are open plan, which I feel adds to the informal vibe. Work wear is office casual. Most people have a blazer on the back of their chairs (just in case) and always dress smartly if they know they will be seeing clients but otherwise it is quite relaxed. We have dress down Fridays on the last Friday of every month."
First year trainee, London
"Location on Colmore Row is great, but the offices are a little dated now."
First year trainee, Birmingham
"Good size office, nice canteen, can use parking spaces in evenings and at weekends."
First year trainee, Nottingham
"Regional offices are large, fairly modern. New London office is excellent."
Second year trainee,
"The office I work in is in an excellent location. There is discounted food in the canteen for staff, and an onsite Starbucks. The computers do need updating but they are in the process of doing that. The office as a whole could do with a bit of a refresh."
Second year trainee, Birmingham
"Dress code is smart casual. This means most men wear suits but no tie, and women wear dresses/blouses and skirts/trousers with flats/heels. The office is open plan with pink noise so that distracting chatter is muted somewhat. The client areas are very impressive and are currently under renovation."
First year trainee, London
"The offices are bright, fresh and modern. There are showers and other facilities and the catering is also very good. The dress code is surprisingly casual. Men tend to wear chinos and open neck shirts and women wear dresses, skirts etc but generally not suits (unless going to court of course). We tend to dress smart casual in the office unless there is an important meeting, in which case you are encouraged to dress a bit smarter."

"The office is open-plan with good facilities. The dress code is smart business wear, but we do have dress down days."
First year trainee, Birmingham
"The facilities and location are the very best in Leeds, in my opinion. The dress code is relaxed when appropriate, but everyone knows when to step up the formality."
Second year trainee, Leeds
"The London office is fantastic and it is located about two minutes away from Cannon Street, St. Paul's, Bank and Mansion House. The office is modern, clean and bright with very impressive client meeting rooms looking out over St. Paul's. The dress code is formal (unsurprisingly), but generally I leave my jacket hung up and my tie in the drawer."
First year trainee, London
"The dress code is relaxed/professional, and there is no need for ties (unless there is a client meeting). Although I find that the open-plan arrangement is suitable for everyone as it can get noisy, I do think that the office is modern, clean and well equipped."
Second year trainee, London
"Dress code can be fairly relaxed, smart/casual. There is a dress down Friday once a month for charity in the Manchester office, but I am not sure about the other offices. Dressing up for meetings or client events is expected, but otherwise no one is going to have a go at you for not wearing a tie!"
Second year trainee, Manchester
"I have only been to three of the firm's offices all of which are nicely decorated with lots of space. Dress code is as you would expect, suits are a must and it varies from person to person as to whether they wear a tie. I would recommend that any trainee wear a tie to meetings!"
First year trainee, Leeds

"A dress down Friday could be introduced."
First year trainee, London
"The office is nice, in a good location, with good facilities, including a cafe that transforms into a bar in the evening. The dress code is fairly smart at the firm."
First year trainee, London
"The office is mainly open-plan and we have a good deli. Dress is smart (but not overly smart) with dress down Fridays once a month for charity."
First year trainee, Manchester
"Office dress is relatively formal, but you can wear a smart dress and a cardigan for instance."
First year trainee, Cambridge
"Most desks at the firm are large with plenty of facilities. Most have natural light and a view and the client suite is a nice place to be."
Second year trainee, London
"Eversheds have a very central office with a good canteen."
First year trainee, Cambridge
"The offices are in a superb location on Cheapside by St Paul's cathedral with excellent views of London. The dress code is business but usually without a tie when at your desk."
Second year trainee, London
