"I'm very satisfied. I get a variety of work from all team members and have had a lot of client exposure."
First year trainee, Edinburgh
"This varied from department to department. A lot of what I did in some departments was business development, horizon watching and client investment. However, I was really satisfied with the quality of work I was given and the level of responsibility I was trusted with in other departments."
Second year trainee, London
"I have been more satisfied with the quality as I've progressed during my traineeship. I have been involved in a number of good-quality matters with good client contact and been given the opportunity to demonstrate my knowledge."
Second year trainee, Glasgow
"The work given to trainees at Pinsent Masons is of a very high standard. While there are always some tasks that aren't the most intellectually stimulating, the firm tries to keep these to a minimum and encourages trainees to put themselves out there to get as much interesting work as possible."
First year trainee, London
"The quality of the work I have been assigned has vastly improved as my training contract has progressed. I now manage my own contracts (with supervision) and attend client negotiations on my own. I can really see the difference in the value that I add. I still do the odd bit of proofreading but now it's nice and more like down time."
Second year trainee, London
"I am sitting with the corporate department at the moment and I get involved in a variety of trainee tasks such as drafting ancillary documents, undertaking company searches and completing research tasks. However, I have also had the opportunity to attend a disclosure meeting, run a client signing meeting on my own and sit in on client calls."
First year trainee, Birmingham
"The work I've been given in my traineeship so far has made me feel as though I am a valued member of the team. I work with various members within my department, assisting them in any work required for case management."
First year trainee, Edinburgh
"The level of work varies greatly but rest assured that you will get to see a little bit of everything if you are willing to put yourself out there. It's unavoidable that you will be stood by the printer creating bundles on some days, but the team appreciates the time it takes to put bundles together and you could be assisting with drafting key documents or sitting in on a mediation the next day."
First year trainee, Leeds
