Summer internship, work experience

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
London, England (UK)

I have been working at Freshfields as an intern for less than a year

ProsWorking with both an associate and a senior associate means you are well supported and that if you have any issues, they are on hand to help.
Good location.
High quality of work.
Early responsibility- I even had some of my work incorporated into the final advice given to a client.

ConsSome employees were not particularly helpful and a little cold.
The building is quite confusing and relatively difficult to navigate.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
