I worked at Minster Law full-time (More than 5 years)
Great people on the "shop floor" (I made lots of good friends). Good wages, often slightly higher than rival firms. Good work parties.
Extremely high case loads and unmanageable unless you do regular unpaid overtime, not enough support from management, too many targets which cant be achieved in core hours and very VERY micromanaged. Parking is very limited at both sites, you would have to get there before 8.30am and even then you might be pushing it for a space. I was there over 4 years and still have lots of friends who work there and it has not changed. Unless your happy working almost double your core hours, dont mind being micro managed and love the pressure of a high caseload, avoid working here.
Advice to Management
Listen to the people and support them more - they know what it's like to actually do the job and not just sit behind a desk setting targets that are often unrealistic
