First year trainee, London
"There is a gym on-site, but there are also discounts for other gyms if you don't feel like exercising with colleagues. There are some local discounts in the area (eg restaurants).

Depending on which department you're in, there might be a culture of bringing treats into the office for a birthday/after a holiday."

2013

"Taxis home, expenses for international secondments, free lunches at graduate recruitment events."
First year trainee, London
"Honestly, our perks are fairly standard for similar firms: taxis and free dinners past a certain time, very good meals out after a closing/big case, client events that can involve sporting/cultural events, a healthy 'uplift' (i.e. extra pay) when on an international secondment."
Second year trainee, Paris
"Taxi back in the evening when working late; having the back door access to Vivat Bacchus bar; good staff cafeteria; secondment opportunities."
First year trainee, London
"Not any unusual perks. There is a free gym on-site which is useful and the classes are good. There are the same perks as with any other big, City law firm - free dinner and taxis after 9:00pm, sleeping pods, good IT support, doctor on-site etc. There is no pension contribution at trainee level which is disappointing."
Second year trainee, London
