"The lack of bonuses can be an issue. The firm has been lagging behind until recently when compared to other American firms but is still up there with the top paying UK firms."
Second year trainee, London
"The firm's pay is reasonable and comfortably matches magic circle levels. However, the firm did fall behind its US counterparts last year."
First year trainee, London
"The salary is very good for trainees. We are hoping the 2017 qualification salary goes up to match some of the other US firms."
Second year trainee, London
"For graduate pay, trainees can't complain. However, the firm did slip behind rivals at the new qualifier level last year. There are no bonuses."
Second year trainee, London
"I think the qualification salary from last year could be higher for a US firm. JD has dropped down the rankings (we used to be about fifth or sixth in the City) so can't really be counted alongside its US peers."
First year trainee, London
"We don't have bonuses but our wages are extremely generous."
First year trainee, London
"Last year's pay was not as high as at other US firms of a similar stature but was still far ahead of most UK-based firms."
Second year trainee, London
"The pay at trainee level is above average even though there is no system for bonuses. Work is rewarded by increased remuneration."
