"The office is very big and I have my own office space with more than enough room. There isn't a proper dining area/canteen unfortunately. The dress code is smart but we have dress down Fridays and I can leave the office in my gym kit so it's flexible enough."
First year trainee, Guildford
"We have modern offices with a bright and open feel. The dress code is flexible but generally smart Monday to Thursday with dress down every Friday."
First year trainee, Guildford
"The office is modern and up to date, with two people sharing a room. Based in the centre of Guildford, it's perfect to walk in to town or along the river at lunch times as well as being near to restaurants and pubs for the evening. The dress code is smart but not overly strict and we have dress down Fridays."
Second year trainee, Guildford
"The dress code is standard office wear but you are expected to look smarter at client meetings and external events. The office space and location is good. Facilities are nice but not as extensive as larger law firms."
Second year trainee, Guildford
"Our offices are good but there is limited communal space for eating or socialising during lunch breaks. There is a good coffee machine but only on one floor. The fridges and staff rooms are too small for the growing firm."
Second year trainee, Guildford
"The fact that it's right opposite the station is really handy."

"The office is very nice though in my opinion it could do with more facilities with regards to food."
First year trainee, Guildford
"I think the facilities are generally good although the office could benefit from more areas for staff socialising and break-times. The dress code is as expected from a law firm - it is generally smart (although we have dress down days) and I have always felt that you are expected to look smarter when you have external client-facing meetings."
Second year trainee, Guildford
"Each lawyer sits in an office with a roommate, however the layout is such that you can always see other members of staff. People keep their doors open unless they do not want to be disturbed, and so this leads to a semi-open plan feeling. The firm's location is central to Guildford, merely a few hundred metres from the main station and only 35 minutes on the train to Waterloo. The firm has a reasonable attitude to dress code, with regular dress down days run by the Charity Committee."
Second year trainee, Guildford
"The office is spacious and peaceful, with all fee earners sharing an office room with one other associate/partner. Having only ever worked in open plan offices before, this is preferable in terms of productivity. The location is good - we're based right in the heart of Guildford which is very convenient. The dress code is smart with dress down every Friday."
First year trainee, Guildford
"The office is new and well equipped with light and open offices, and kitchen facilities. It is in central Guildford, so ideally placed for lunch and after work plans. The dress code is smart office wear, but there are also specific dress down days."

"The office is next to the centre of Guildford so is in a great location for lunch, shopping and after work drinks. Lawyers share an office with one other person and the meeting rooms are very modern. The firm has pretty good facilities though the coffee machine breaks a lot! The dress code is smart but we have dress down days in aid of the firm's charity once a month."
Second year trainee, Guildford
"Fantastic office that we only moved into four years ago. The location couldn't be better and we have more or less everything that we need."
First year trainee, Guildford
"Modern offices, right next to Guildford train station. 10 well-furnished meeting rooms. Excellent catering facilities. Smart dress code expected, except for dress-down Fridays on the final Friday of each month."
First year trainee, Guildford
"Having only one office is nice as you get to know people really well. The location is handy for London but enough outside the city to feel like you are not in London. Always smart although more dress down in the summer."
