          I have been working at Pinsent Masons full-time for more than 3 years

          Pros

          Pinsent Masons provide a good working ethic and a flexible/agile approach to working helping you achieve a sustainable work life balance. The Partners are very engaging and approachable and there's much flexibility and room for development.

          Cons

          The only downside to Pinsent Masons is the salaries offered compared to the rest of the market. Within the Business Development group, salaries can be relatively low compared to other law firms and at present, there is no structure in place for bonuses.
