    Very nice firm to work for. People are lovely. Good work life balance. I only left because the work was too niche for me

    I cannot think of any other than the salary could have been a bit better

    Couldn't think of a better law firm to work for

    Pros

    The title says it all. I have worked in large and small firms prior to this and was attracted to Farrer for its size and 'supposed' culture which turned out (for once) not to be just a rumour. Everyone is treated equally and the partners are actually a pleasure to deal with. Some kwirky...but tell me a law firm who doesn't have one. Salaries are never going to compare to magic or silver circle...but if it's money you want, an up or out culture you desire and no work life balance...then look the other way because Farrer is not the place for you then.

    Cons

    A canteen would go a long way!

    Pros

    Pay is relatively competitive. interesting history of the building...nice selection of teas? I haven't much more to add to be honest.

    Cons

    Old fashioned and ran by old dinosaurs. Worst office atmosphere. Senior management think they are embracing change but in reality they could not have been more resistant! No real strategic direction and always seems to be one step behind others in the market.
