the office and do the work without expecting anything else

Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer (Freshfields) is an international law firm headquartered in London and operating in over 20 countries. The firm has been highly praised by many of its employees and clients for its competitive pay, benefits, and friendly atmosphere. Most employees have described the attorneys as professional, friendly, and willing to invest time in teaching paralegals. In addition, the firm offers its employees the option to work from home two days per week. Many employees also described the office location as convenient and the benefits as generous.

However, there are some drawbacks to working at Freshfields. Many employees complained of long hours and a lack of work-life balance. Many also pointed out that the base pay could be improved, and that the technology at the firm is dated compared to other firms. Additionally, some employees mentioned a culture of bullying among the partners, and that those not in the inner circle were overlooked and dismissed.

Overall, Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer is a great place to work for those who are looking for competitive pay and benefits with a friendly atmosphere. However, employees should be aware that long hours and a lack of work-life balance may be expected, and that the culture of the firm may be oppressive for those not in the inner circle.

Pros: 5.0 Former Employee, less than 1 yearShadowing SchemeOct 6, 2019 - Shadowing Scheme ProsInterning at Freshfields at a very early stage of my legal career was truly an all-inclusive experience. Work-wise, I got the opportunity to get involved in several technical tasks within a wide range of case situations. I was sat with the Corporate Teeam. I was excited to get involved in the team's efforts, even if my contribution was, needless to say, of minor importance. I got acquainted with several high-profile and inspiring individuals, got to attend conference calls and get insights on cases which the firm handles. All employees were friendly, and got some useful guidance by having lunch with trainees who had just been in my place.ConsThe only downside I could think of would be that, despite being allocated work tasks, these were of a minor nature and did not have the opportunity to do any drafting of documents. I only handled research-based and proofreading assignments.
