‘Paid parental leave based on years of service with only decent amount of leave starting from 3 year service mark’
Allowed a lot of study leave to enable me to undertake my practical legal training, though I understand they may no longer be as generous with this as the course structure of PLT has changed. Partners I worked for were happy for me to take annual leave provided I gave sufficient notice. No issues with sick leave. Work life balance very team dependent.
There are no benefits afforded to staff, including fee earners. Flexibility arrangements are lip service and management of COVID was terrible. Paid parental leave is based on years of service. Performance bonuses entirely discretionary and rarely awarded. Pay rises minimal and 1:3 ratio is not applied to cost/billings, it's more like 1:5 even for junior earners.
The firm is extremely cost conscious and prefers not to pay perks.
The company does not provide any additional benefits beyond what is legally required. It is all part of their low-cost business model.
Literally nothing, besides the usual novated lease packages
There are no benefits apart from the standard statutory entitlements - the firm is so lean it’s almost an industry joke. I had to bring my tea (old Lipton teabags that were undrinkable), salt and pepper (none), and tissues (couldn’t find any). The stationary cupboard is stocked but since when is that a benefit?? Working flexibly is a myth - it was definitely not encouraged. If you did work from home you need to use your own computer - laptops are a luxury that is not provided to lawyers...
It's almost non-existent. Maternity leave has a 12 month clawback period. Maternity leave is only paid to 'top up' your salary after the government payments.
There are absolutely no benefits to working here. If the firm can find a way to cut costs on something it will do it. I am surprised they don't make employees bring their own stationery.
There are no benefits beyond those mandated by law
There are no benefits, apart from a phone allowance and some parental leave - staff are not the priority it's all about the $$. A tissue box and a flu shot would be nice.
List based on reports from current and former employees. It may not be complete.
