"Trainees don't get bonuses. I think bonuses are something that should be considered."
Second year trainee, London
"I believe that trainees should get bonuses as we work hard."
First year trainee, London
"The salary is equal to the general market rate, so I can't complain about how much I am paid. I don't really think about bonuses as I don't think they are very large compared to other places."
Second year trainee, London
"The salary is competitive."
First year trainee, Sheffield
"Following a recent pay review, pay has just risen which is great. I cannot comment on the bonus scheme as I have not experienced it firsthand yet, being a trainee."
Second year trainee, London


"The trainee salary is fair and in line with other firms of a similar size. The pay post-qualification is more of a concern and the bonus system is not transparent. The bonus system has been changed recently and some associates feel they have missed out as a result. As a trainee, we will not see a bonus for a long time as the current system only applies to three yr PQE and above."
First year trainee, London
"Trainees don't get bonuses, but I am satisfied with the standard trainee salary that I receive. I have heard grumblings from those higher up."
First year trainee, London
"Trainees are on a good salary, as are NQs. There is no trainee bonus, although there are three trainee prizes each year for outstanding work."
Second year trainee, London
"Pay is good for a regional office. The bonus scheme has changed recently so we'll wait and see!"
Second year trainee, Sheffield
"I think that trainees earn a good salary and it is in line with the market standard. However, salaries have never increased with inflation."
First year trainee, London
"A trainee bonus may be used to reward those who have been particularly busy, or have gone beyond their role in some way."
First year trainee, London
