"Go-getting, demanding and unpretentious."
Pros:

  • Salaries and perks (including free lunches) provided by the firm are very generous
  • The firm's London office is very high quality with great facilities and a convenient location
  • Lots of social events for trainees to get involved in
Cons: 
  • Trainees can end up working some pretty long hours
  • It is possible some people may feel a little unsupported at times
  • Some departments can have an element of "face-time"
  • The firms's high standards mean they can be quite demanding of trainees
