Our highest ranking was in social life closely followed by job satisfaction, work life balance, client contact and approachability.
The Legal 500 Future Lawyers survey bases its rankings on anonymous feedback collected from trainee solicitors in the UK who share their experiences whilst training at their law firm. Using a mix of scores and comments, the responses are gathered to create a profile for each firm which future candidates can look through and choose the firms with the best fit for their training contract.
We received some wonderful feedback from the survey, in particular when asked “What is the best thing about the firm?” where responses included:
“The quality of the work combined with a relatively relaxed and friendly atmosphere”
“friendly and sociable within departments”
“the trust that partners place in you from day one”
“the culture – it feels like a giant family”
“the reasonable hours”
“the size of the firm”
“great social life!’
