"The culture is excellent at my firm. Partners are very approachable. There is a mentor scheme in place that provides good support and a chance for you to get to know another colleague very well. Work is very good at organising team away-days and evening events."

Graduate, London
"The firm is based on sound principles that are incorporated into what is a friendly and happy environment. This is balanced by a professional and hard-working attitude. The social aspect of Gerald Eve, both inside and outside of working hours, is very good. The firm makes the effort to ensure that staff members have the chance to get to know each other. This may involve charity work, sporting activities or even just the odd trip to the pub."

"There is a good mix of socialising amongst teams and graduates alike. There are several internal events which help you maintain internal contacts. All levels of colleagues socialise together."
Experienced, London
"Whilst the working environment is very professional, the firm is extremely friendly. The firm, like any has a hierarchical structure but at Gerald Eve any employee is extremely approachable and this is applicable from Partner right down to Surveyor level. No matter how busy a Partner may be, they always will find time to explain tasks to us as graduates."

2014

"Gerald Eve has a very good, friendly culture. The company is not very hierarchical - I get to work closely with colleagues at every level including partners and board members. The office is open-plan and all the fee earners are on the same floor so there is plenty of collaboration on projects and you get to know people in every team. There are a number of sports to get involved with such as football, netball, hockey, cricket and softball. Each are at varying levels and everyone is welcome to play."
Graduate, London
"Gerald Eve has an excellent working culture. Work is to a high standard, with all work being signed off by a partner before it is sent to the client. From day one you are involved in working within your own sub team which has been very enjoyable and aids quick understanding. The majority of employees are very approachable and patient if approached with questions. The graduates are all very friendly, regularly meet up over lunch/after-work drinks and are well networked into the industry."
Graduate, London
"The company as a whole has a great social life. With the firm providing company away days and office outings, there is always a big effort to ensure teams work well together and healthy working relationships are maintained. The structure of the company is quite London-focused, however, the regional offices are growing, and there are always opportunities to work with different offices to gain more experience in different fields."
Graduate, Manchester
"The culture here is friendly and personable. Interaction at all levels is widely encouraged during the working day and after hours. Everyone at every level contributes to life at the firm. Being a partnership enables a culture of inclusion and togetherness."
Entry level, London
"The culture is very inclusive and welcoming at all levels, and there is always the opportunity to get involved in something outside of work."
Graduate, London
"The team are approachable and keen to help me learn. There are partners, associates, seniors, consultants and assistants and generally each (or most) levels are represented on each project. There is a good social scene within my department and a strong focus on teamwork."
Graduate, London
"Since starting with the firm, I have been on a variety of days out with work. The firm away day in Oxfordshire was a great opportunity to meet with colleagues from other offices. There has also been a team building day (departmental only) as well as sporting events to be involved with across the firm."
