The ability to listen in on conferences across the globe, be that in Hong Kong, London, Tokyo or Singapore is really amazing in both the sense of learning lots and also gaining an insight into the different methods of teaching.
There is minimal "orientation" for new joiners - graduates are expected to hit the ground running. Before some of the graduate rotations there is training hosted in Singapore.
Informal training is exceptionally good - we learn by getting involved of the highest calibre of work from seniors that are, on the whole, happy to teach. The formal training needs improvement. In Hong Kong, there are CPD sessions weekly, some of which are run in Hong Kong and available via VC to the rest of the network, and some of which we watch in Hong Kong over VC. There could be more involvement in this in Perth.

Other than specific overseas training sessions, most training is on the job and less formal training sessions
Fantastic and regular online learning modules and regional training programmes.
The training programme is thorough and allows you to rotate through four practice areas before settling.
We are constantly engaging in training and skills sessions relevant to both Australian and other jurisdictions (lead by our other offices). A recent training session I attended was on UK and EU merger guidelines.
Training was useful but could be improved to be so much more practical.
