(based on 25 ratings in 2018)


"Retention rates are historically good and it feels as though there are plenty of opportunities in a variety of departments."
First year trainee, London
"Most people generally get offers and most accept."
First year trainee, London
"Retention rates are good but there could be more transparency about the number of departmental vacancies."
First year trainee, London
"It has gone up and down in recent years. The new qualifier selection process is not very clear and we are not explicitly told which departments have spaces or how many spaces are available."
First year trainee, London
"They used to be 100% but have had a slight dip recently. This is mainly due to large cohorts wanting to qualify into the same department rather than the firm cutting people out."
First year trainee, London
"Retention rates are good and the firm makes an effort to encourage people to stay. That said, there is a lack of transparency over departmental vacancies."
"Lots of trainees are aiming for roles in the same department and it is very hard to know who will be kept on."
First year trainee, London
"The retention rates are usually good."
