I worked at Simmons & Simmons full-time

Pros

Good work-life balance and supportive, friendly environment. Interesting work available if you show initiative and enthusiasm. Opportunities to work across teams and with a variety of different people.

Cons

Few opportunities for internal promotion leading to fairly high staff turnover. Minimal communication within business support teams around strategy and short-to-medium term goals.

Advice to Management

More discussion around strategy and long term goals for business support teams would increase motivation levels.
