Minuses

2019

"The hours can be unpredictable."
First year trainee, London
"There's uncertainty surrounding future seats."
First year trainee, London
"The social aspect of the firm could be improved and the teams tend to be small."
First year trainee, London
"There could be more formal training."
First year trainee, London
"The lack of formal training means that you learn a lot of things on the job as you go, which means that there's a steep learning curve. In some cases, clearer feedback on pieces of work you have done would be helpful."
First year trainee, London

2018

"You have to accept that weeknight socialising is going to be difficult. It's common to order dinner into the office from Monday to Thursday."
First year trainee, LONDON
"The training system is not very flexible and has previously lacked support."
Second year trainee, London
"There can be long hours in some departments and there are high expectations of you early on."
First year trainee, London
"The administrative side of things can take a long time (finding out about qualifications, for example). It would be good if there was more training given too."
Second year trainee, London
"Some of the departments are very focused on particular areas, which means that you may not get the same breadth of experience during a seat that you might at another firm. There is some opacity in relation to seat rotations and which international secondments are available at any given time."
First year trainee, London
