Partners and associates are very generous down the pub.Second year trainee, LondonHelpful?
Associate dinners are excellent. These are in the client dining rooms and the food is superb with unlimited wine. £5 free in the canteen is pretty good as the canteen is already subsidised.2 yr PQE, LondonHelpful?

Think it's fairly normal in the City but a free dinner and cab ride home when working late is much appreciated. We also have good department Christmas parties and a fairly extravagant firm-wide Christmas party (which is a lot of fun).Second year traineeHelpful?

Departmental and firm-wide Christmas party.Junior solicitorHelpful?
Lots of social events where the food/drink is free (we have a tab). The Christmas party is a really good night, always in a top quality hotel in London and no expense is spared.First year traineeHelpful?
We don't get anything too wacky that I can think of. We get £5 a week towards food at the canteen (whoop whoop), subsidised gym membership, spare sports tickets if they’re not being used for client entertainment (Twickenham, Emirates, Wembley, Oval, etc.). Free chocolate bars, crisps, soft drinks, etc. After 6pm (not sure that's a good thing!), Free dinner after 7pm, and free taxis home after 9pm. We are also allowed to use our BlackBerries as our personal phones without having to reimburse the firm (within reason), which I think is fairly generous.Junior solicitorHelpful?
Not great for perks. Tickets for sporting events do come up though at a cost. We do get standard provisions such as dinner when staying late and cabs home.First year traineeHelpful?
