    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Shoosmiths part-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    None - apart from the swanky new offices if you are lucky enough to work in them

    Cons

    Lack of partners and senior associates (FET) [who does not deserve a partner promotion] in the office enabling people to breathe and work in a relaxed environment without any fleurs and graces. Cons Continually being stared at by FET members of the team in a threatening way the excessive of use of fleurs in the office - would do much better without it given that it is not conducive to a harmonious working... environment.

    Advice to Management

    Review employment of FET staff. Racist behaviour should not be tolerated by anyone from anyone

    I have been working at Shoosmiths full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    An extra day off for your birthday Internal recognition programme Quality clients and nature of work Collegiate and friendly culture

    Cons

    Market rate pay but no bonus despite year-on-year growth and increased PEP IT and telephony systems in dire need of upgrades Solicitors are given business mobiles but only enabled for email, not audio calls

    Advice to Management

    Upgrade IT and introduce bonuses to further incentivise workforce
