(based on 14 ratings in 2017)

2017

"This is generally high. If departments are oversubscribed, graduate development will explore other options internally for good trainees to try to keep them at the firm."
Second year trainee, London
"I'm slightly uncertain about this given the firm's growth strategy for 2020 and in the context of Brexit and changing global dynamics."
Second year trainee, London
"Most trainees can be confident, although this is hugely subject to the market conditions for each team."
Second year trainee, London
"They are good and should remain good as the firm plans to significantly expand the London office."
First year trainee, London
"It depends on your intake and varies from seat to seat but you will generally get a job if you want one."
Second year trainee, London
"They are good, although trainee intakes have increased so we'll have to see how this affects it."
Second year trainee, London
"Retention is generally very good and, when people leave, it is usually because the department they picked was oversubscribed rather than they weren't offered a job."

2014

"If you want to stay on and develop your career at White & Case, then the chances are you will be offered a NQ position."
Second year trainee, London
"In my experience, if you're good enough and there's space in your chosen department, you'll be kept on."
First year trainee, London
"They're very transparent about retention in that if we perform well and work hard, there's no reason why we won't all be retained upon qualification. Since starting, the only people to leave the firm have done so of their own accord to move overseas/change careers or go in a different direction career-wise."
Second year trainee, London
"Retention rates seem to be very high at White & Case."
