The people; the quality of work; the high-profile clientsThe uncertainty regarding workload and 'capacity' - as a Trainee, because it is unlikely that you are in charge of your own files, you are in other people's hands as to how busy you will be.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
The atmosphere and work ethic - for a law firm, it's a very friendly and engaging place to be; and if you finish your work, you're actually encouraged to leave on time!The workload and hours in the corporate team can be unpredictable - although this is not true for many other teams.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
Colleagues are ambitious and willing to assist with any queries. The work environment created encourages personal development. Good work life balance. The company is expanding into work which is undertaken normally by city firms, but the salaries paid are still regional salaries.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
I am involved in a variety of work and have the support of very experienced lawyers to help me grow. The office culture has a big emphasis on work-life balance (for instance we have weekly yoga classes and a running club) which is important in the legal industry. Can't think of any!
