"Practical, diverse and supportive."
Pros:

  • While below those of some US firms, salaries are around the magic circle level in the UK.

  • Regular informal training is provided by mentors throughout the training contract.
Cons: 
  • More seat-specific training could be offered to trainees.
  • Some trainees would have liked more firm-organised socialising.
  • Hours can be quite tough in some of the busier departments.
  • Some departments may only have one trainee.
