Honestly, I haven't experienced a law firm like this. Particularly the Newcastle office - everyone is super friendly and seems to care. There are few instances where people "pull rank" or belittle more junior staff. There are plenty of opportunities to be involved in firm life whether that's through participating in pro bono and community activities or staff drinks, staff BBQs, fitness and well-being activities etc. It's a great work environment and not somewhere you dread coming to each day.
Positive and collaborative culture. Very inclusive workplace.
The culture here is very inclusive and people are free to express their individuality. People are friendly and want to help each other.
We have a very flat structure at the firm. I am just as likely to chat about my weekend with a fellow junior lawyer or legal assistant as I am with a Partner. Everyone is friendly and willing to give you the time of day. I socialize with colleagues both in and outside of the office.
Everyone is very friendly, feel like a part of a team, get good facetime with clients, feel like partners care.
Work hard but have fun.
While there is a hierarchy in the firm, it is not reflected in how they treat individuals. The hours are reasonable and the firm encourages a work-life balance.
