"The dress code is fairly formal, but there is a summer dress code for July and August."
First year trainee, London
"The office is potentially a tad dated in parts, but a refurbishment is being done. The location is key - Exchange Square is excellent. The subsidised Virgin Active gym (with a swimming pool) on the doorstep is also a plus."
Second year trainee, London
"The dress code is formal but not too formal: men don't wear ties unless they have a client meeting, for instance. The office space is generous and you only share an office with your supervisor. The location is ideal - there are multiple transport links to Liverpool Street station, and the facilities are great (especially the freshly baked cookies you get at client meetings)."
First year trainee, London
"Our location is fantastic, incredibly convenient and surrounded by great spots for eating and drinking. The offices are a little tired but the facilities are more than acceptable. Our dress code is relatively flexible, and we are currently on 'dress down summer' - not that we're having much of a summer!"
Second year trainee, London
"The office is a little bit outdated but it is full of natural light. It is a pleasant place to work. We have a long summer dress policy which is very welcome when the sun is out."

"The dress code is very much what you'd expect: some groups wear ties, some don't. Summer dress down is a plus. The location of our office is another plus; we are between the City and Shoreditch. Facilities are fine."
Second year trainee, London
"We have nice offices, although they are currently undergoing renovation in areas so some bits are better than others. Having two cafés and a restaurant in the building is a big plus. Also a good library system and IT facilities away from your office. Dress code is usually pretty smart but varies between departments. Ties are not required for men unless you're going to a meeting, and suit jackets are not compulsory for women unless going to a meeting."
Second year trainee, London
"Great location, lovely offices and a great gym nearby. The dress code is very accommodating in the summer."
First year trainee, London
"The firm's offices are very well located - right next to Liverpool Street - with good facilities. There's no gym on site but there is one right next door. The dress code is relatively formal with summer dress-down."
First year trainee, London
"Our offices are quite nice, light and airy. In the Corporate department, the dress code is rather casual but this varies from department to department."
First year trainee, London
"The square just outside the office is a great place to eat outside in the summer, and has a large screen which was very well utilised for the football World Cup. The offices themselves are under renovation, the floors that have been done up are nice."

"The underside of the building is interesting, but otherwise the offices are nothing to shout home about. Liverpool Street is nicely convenient for the east end though. Facilities are pretty standard, dress code varies between groups, although we're on summer casual at the moment as a firm."
First year trainee, London
"Some offices are nicer than others, depending on whether or not they've got windows! I've been fortunate to sit in offices with windows to date and therefore have always had a pleasant work environment. The client-facing meeting rooms are of a high quality and the central location of the firm is great. The dress code is not as formal as I had expected it to be."
First year trainee, London
"Great location. Offices a little dated and no on-site gym, etc. Dress code varies from department to department. Real estate is on the more casual side."
First year trainee, London
"Offices are comfortable and adequate, but are not as slick as some in the City."
Second year trainee, London
"Dress code not too stuffy. Ugly building, but big desks and big windows."
First year trainee, London
"Abu Dhabi offices are fabulous. London is nice too, although the view can't compare. The dress code is usually suit separates for ladies, and cardigans are a must as the offices are very cold on Monday/Friday."
First year trainee, Abu Dhabi
