    I have been working at Shoosmiths full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Shoosmiths people are invested in their values which drives the culture. The environment is friendly, people are approachable, and communication is clear from the top.

    Cons

    On site catering would be good. Some sites have limited parking, or are out of city locations. But these points have a minimal impact on every day working.

    Advice to Management

    Keep building upon the success of the firm, be forward-looking, and future-minded, to enable employees to be retained.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Shoosmiths (Manchester, England) in January 2011.

    Interview

    3 stage interview process with boss and team member then senior management and boss and finally a final interview with management.

    It was more commercial questions and they did not try to catch you out if you did not know thwant answer to a question.
