(based on 14 ratings in 2016)

2016

"Generally competitive, but not enough regional adjustments."
First year trainee, Bristol
"The trainee salary is fairly average for a London firm in the city. However, the new qualifier salary and subsequent pay rises are not. Bonuses are slim."
First year trainee, London
"It is somewhat unclear as a trainee what your potential for salary growth is."
First year trainee, Manchester
"The trainee salary is in line with the market standards for City trainees and the new qualifier salary is also currently in line with the market. However, this will need to increase in the next year as the vast majority of City firms are increasing their salaries."
First year trainee, London
"The pay is higher than most other firms in the area and seems to be in line with other national firms. The bonuses and benefits are good. The firm has a lot of links to other companies and we get a lot of discounts because of that."
First year trainee, Sheffield
"Good rate of pay. Although we are not eligible for bonuses."
First year trainee, Newcastle
"The pay is fairly standard for trainees. Trainees are not, however, part of the bonus scheme so are not rewarded for hard work."
First year trainee, Birmingham
"Pay needs to be increased to attract top trainees, especially to the regional offices. I am unaware of any bonuses for trainees."
First year trainee, Birmingham

2015

"I found my salary to be competitive and in line with my expectations."
First year trainee, Birmingham
"I find that the pay for trainees is good. I have no exposure to the workings of the bonus system, but as I understand it is based on your performance, and who receives a bonus is ultimately decided by the partner in the team."
First year trainee, Birmingham
"I have found that the trainee salary is very good; as is the qualification wage."
First year trainee, Birmingham
"My salary is less than at other firms of a similar size, but considering the working hours and atmosphere at Irwin Mitchell, my salary is more than sufficient."
First year trainee, Manchester
"In my experience, the salary is average as a trainee at Irwin Mitchell, but I found it to be poor on qualification."
First year trainee, Sheffield
"While the salary could be increased to be more competitive in the variety of fields that Irwin and Mitchell work in, it is still a very good salary, by all means."
First year trainee, Leeds

2014

"Pay is market-comparable. As a trainee we do not get bonuses and I do not know how the bonus system works."
Second year trainee, Leeds
"The pay has recently increased, bringing it in line with other large firms in the area. Given that the hours are far better here than at other firms I would imagine that my pay per hour is in fact higher. I am informed that the NQ salaries and associate salaries are on the low side though."
First year trainee, Sheffield
"I think the pay is good for a Midlands-based office and there is scope for substantial increase as your career progresses."
First year trainee, Birmingham
"As a trainee your pay is set and to my knowledge, you do not receive bonuses. I believe the current trainee wage is competitive in the legal market place."
First year trainee, Birmingham
"There are no bonuses for trainees. The pay for a regional firm is on the higher end and a recent salary increase for trainees has been warmly received."
First year trainee, Sheffield
"The pay is good at trainee level, could be better once you qualify."
Second year trainee, London
"The pay has come into line with other national firms but I believe I could command a higher salary at a different large firm. The salary is very good when compared with high street firms."
First year trainee, Sheffield
"I think the salary is on the low side for London but the quality of the work makes up for that."
Second year trainee, London
