Second year trainee, London
"I am pleased to see engagement with various minority recruitment initiatives. However, as with all firms, there is a strong presence of people who went to private school."
Second year trainee, London
"There is not a lot of diversity in the office. However, there is clearly a conscious effort to recruit from a more diverse pool of candidates as evidenced by recent vac scheme students and future trainees."
First year trainee, London
"The firm seems supportive of people with families and there are several diversity and social mobility initiatives."
First year trainee, London
"The firm has, while I have been here, implemented a number of new policies (both in recruitment and for current employees) to emphasise the importance of diversity and make efforts to promote it. That said, despite a relatively large number of female partners and associates, the makeup of the firm by-and-large reflects traditional criticisms of the City when it comes to diversity. However, efforts are being made to improve this."
Second year trainee, London
"There are many groups set up to promote diversity including the women's group, BAME network and LGBT group. The numbers of female partners in certain departments is still lower than the firm would want but positive changes are being made. Flexible hours are given to those who go on maternity leave."
