Featured Review

Current Employee - Senior Financial Investigator

I have been working at Solicitors Regulation Authority full-time for less than a year

Pros

I have worked at the Birmingham office for about a year. Great working environment, professional, hard-working, focused while at the same time being friendly, inclusive and genuinely committed to... diversity and equality of opportunity. Also at least within my work area (Client Protection) I find the work interesting and I am constantly learning about new areas of law. I also love the occasional quirky events and the fact that there are always biscuits and cakes waiting to be hoovered up!

Cons

Slightly old-fashioned approach to things like flexible working that seems to be changing in a positive direction over the short time I have been here

Advice to Management

Keep going with the direction of travel, staff love the environment and the more modern, flexible approach to work that is emerging in the organisation

Current Employee - Lawyer

I have been working at Government Legal Department full-time for more than a year

Pros

The opportunity to be involved in advising Government on a range of legal matters that make news headlines, particularly Brexit-related work – you simply don’t get to work on these areas of law in... the private sector. There are also a range of family-friendly policies that support a positive work/life balance for all colleagues, along with generous leave allowance. Staff and line managers are really supportive, creating an inclusive and collaborative working environment. Professional development and progression within the organisation is actively encouraged – several recruitment exercises are held on an annual basis providing both promotion and development opportunities.

Cons

Although the public sector may not be able to rival the pay of City law firms, other benefits (including significant employer pension contributions) do alleviate this somewhat.
