"The salary here is excellent, especially when you consider the friendly environment and hours."
First year trainee, City of London
"The trainee salary and benefits are very good, as is the secondment salary uplift as the cost of living is higher in some secondment locations."
First year trainee, London
"Our pay is generally good for the hours we do but other firms in the City are catching up and trainee salaries are no longer significantly above average, which they used to be. Now they are fairly standard across London law firms."
First year trainee, London
"Our salary is generous for the hours worked in certain departments."
Second year trainee, London
"The trainee salary is one of the best in the City. Upon qualification, the salary is lower than other US firms but, considering we don't work all hours every day (and every weekend), it is a welcomed trade-off."
First year trainee, London


"Pay is decent but we do not receive bonuses as trainees."
Second year trainee, London
"The salary is good but not quite on the level of other American firms within the City."
First year trainee, London
"The trainee salary is fine. I'm unaware of how bonuses work as trainees are not included."
First year trainee, London
"Our pay is good but the bonus structure could be more transparent."
Second year trainee, London
"Bonuses are small but there's a very good basic salary for trainees and associates."
Second year trainee, London
"It's good, but it would be nice to get some overtime pay."
First year trainee, Dechert LLP
