"Good showers and basement space to leave bikes, but I haven't managed to get a locker yet – the waiting list is very long! Subsidised canteen with a healthy salad bar. The offices are pretty easy to get to since they are just behind Liverpool Street station. Spitalfields is just across the road, which is fun for dinner/drinks if you are able to leave the office in time."

"Comfortable offices and convenient location. Business dress except on Fridays."
Second year trainee, London
"Very spacious, lots of natural light, fantastic elevators and lobby area. The location is superb: central with lots of eateries around and on the edge of Shoreditch, which has a great nightlife. The dress code is generally suit with no need for a tie (but many people wear one) and we have dress down Fridays, which everyone seems to participate in (unless they have meetings)."
First year trainee, London
"Offices are great, very modern and great location. Dress code is smart in the week with dress down Friday. We also have dress down summer."
Second year trainee, London
"The offices are very modern and glassy. Built around a central lift core, the offices are around the edge of the building with secretaries sitting in the middle. The client rooms at the top of the building have amazing views of the city and are very impressive and modern. The client floor also does very impressive client lunches and dinners, which as a member of staff you can book for personal activities. The location is five minute's walk from Liverpool Street station, and opposite Spitalfields market. The dress code is office wear Monday to Thursday and dress down Fridays."

"The firm has very nice offices. We are located in a glass-edged building with glass-fronted offices where we have two people per office (usually a partner and a junior sit together). The canteen is really good and serves dinner up to 8:30pm, which makes working late more bearable."
First year trainee, London
"We have great offices and facilities, good meeting spaces and a staff canteen. The only thing that could be improved is the coffee machines in the kitchens."
Second year trainee, London
"The office is in a great location and is nice and modern. We have an excellent view from the client floor."
First year trainee, London
"The offices are well located in London and provide a modern comfortable working environment. Staff can dress casually on Fridays and during July and August."
First year trainee, London
"We're located in great offices at the end of Bishopsgate. The facilities are good, with big offices shared with one other person normally and two others on occasion. The dress code is office professional Monday to Thursday with dress down Friday. We normally have dress down July and August too!"
Second year trainee, London
"We are based in modern offices which are quite spacious. We also have a canteen and changing/shower facilities."

"The offices are modern and the location is good, but they are also a bit minimalist in terms of facilities. The dress code is very relaxed, which makes for a relaxed atmosphere. If you want to be smart all the time, that is fine, but equally if you would prefer to sit in your office without your tie on, that is also fine. Dress down Fridays and the two month dress down summer are also a welcome perk."
Second year trainee, London
"Our office is on Bishopsgate, right opposite Spitalfields market. The facilities are nice and well looked after. The building also has a dry cleaner. You can wear a cardigan, instead of a jacket, as a woman and that is acceptable. We have casual Friday every Friday and July and August are dress down months."
First year trainee, London
"Very modern, light and airy offices with great facilities and in a very convenient location. The dress code is smart/casual with casual Fridays and casual summer."
Second year trainee, London
"Perfect location: we are in the last building in the City before reaching Shoreditch, so it's easy to make the most of both worlds. The office is very impressive, with good facilities and great views from the client floor."

"Very good location, five minutes from Liverpool Street station and great looking offices. Good facilities though a few empty offices due to size."
First year trainee, London
"Casual Friday/summers are pleasant. Canteen is generally pretty good. View from top floor could be nicer."
Second year trainee, London
"Very modern, really good facilities, showers, bike storage. Dress code is quite informal for the City, including dress down summer during July and August."
Second year trainee, London
"It is great walking into an office and feeling impressed by the building every morning. The facilities are good, we have lovely meeting rooms and it's great having a canteen for social reasons. There is also a dry cleaner's downstairs and an in-house doctor. We have dress down Fridays and dress down summer (all of July and August) but you are expected to wear a suit if you are going to a client meeting."
Second year trainee, London
"I think the firm's offices are excellent. Very new, very light and spacious. The dining facilities are plentiful, the only improvement would perhaps be some gym or sports facilities, but as we are on top of train lines, nothing has been built underground."
First year trainee, London
"Office: Good location close to Shoreditch and Spitalfields Market. Not much by way of facilities apart from a canteen. Dress: suit (no need for a tie really), dress down Fridays and dress down summer."
First year trainee, London
"Nice offices, good location near Liverpool Street station, but also close to the East End. Good facilities in terms of food during the day, but meal services in the evening are limited. The dress code is essentially office-wear (without a tie for men) and dress down Friday and for July and August."
