"The pay is very competitive for a regional office and it's better than the majority of competitors in the area (in my experience). The bonus system has been re-thought and is heavily based on work ethic. The criteria for obtaining bonuses is clear and manageable."
First year trainee, Exeter
"The trainee salary is at the lower end of the market for the City. Bonuses for trainees are small and often capped but there is potential after qualification to do well out of the performance-based bonuses."
First year trainee, London
"Pay is pretty good and appears to be market standard in the regions. It sometimes lags a little behind the slightly larger firms, but only marginally."
Second year trainee, Birmingham
"I think the pay is a little below the City market standard and we need to up the pay and make the bonuses more significant. It is fine for people who have a good work/life balance but some people work long hours and they can be paid 20-30% more working the same hours in firms across the street."
