"You get a great level of independence and you are treated like an adult. I know that this is not always the case for some of my peers at Magic Circle firms. Superiors do not take themselves too seriously, which is good."
Second year trainee, London
"Choosing your own work and structuring your own training as well as seeing a transaction from start to finish. The people are also great."
First year trainee, London
"Getting independence in my role and the ability to choose the type of work I am involved in."
Second year trainee, London
"Having high-quality work, sharing an office with another trainee, the trips to Washington DC and New York, getting international work, cooperation with other Jones Day offices, the salary, the on-site gym and the café."
First year trainee, London
"It's collaborative rather than competitive and this gives the firm a great atmosphere."
First year trainee, London
"The high level of responsibility we are given, the friendliness of the firm and the flat hierarchy."
Second year trainee, London
"I enjoy the non-rotational training system as it allows me to follow my interests and do the types of work that interest me most. There are opportunities to explore other practice areas and I feel that I am given plenty of responsibility, which is certainly very motivating. Sharing an office with a trainee is also a huge bonus and makes a real positive impact on a day-to-day basis. I am not aware of any other firm that allows trainees to share an office and it's great to have my own space where I can work without feeling as though I am being watched or analysed by someone."
First year trainee, London
"Managing my own workload and doing work in areas that I am genuinely interested in. The work/life balance is also good."
First year trainee, London
