    I have been working at Taylor Wessing full-time

    Pros

    Having worked for 5 other law firms, this is the best experience I have had throughout my 15 year career. Professional, efficient, hugely knowledgeable and respected experts... and they're also lovely people. I found that they invest in their people right from the time they join. But most importantly, they are a genuinely supportive and collegiate culture, which few other firms can truly live up to.

    Cons

    great biscuits and offices, but coffee could be better!

    Advice to Management

    Please continue to invest and support your staff - It makes coming to work every day a pleasure, and having a comparative experience in the industry, TW is miles ahead. So please don't ever let this slip!

    I worked at Taylor Wessing full-time

    Pros

    Well known name in the legal industry. Good leadership from Managing Partner. Great views from the balcony. Some really nice fee-earners.

    Cons

    Management in some business services teams is toxic. Bullying of junior staff is tolerated and even encouraged (with promotions!). The firm doesn't live up to its values. Absolutely no opportunities for progression unless you're in the right 'clique'. Not accepting of different personalities or work styles. No meaningful training offered. Bitch-y atmosphere. No decent benefits and low pay compared to other firms.... Evidence of unequal pay between people doing similar jobs and really poor female representation, hardly any female partners!

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your business services staff - there is a huge disparity between how the fee-earners and business services staff are treated. It's always clear the fee-earners are the priority for everything, especially training and development. Access to flexible working doesn't exist for most, especially if you're not a parent.

    I worked at Taylor Wessing full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good facilities. Good location. A lot of nice people

    Cons

    Talent isn’t recognised as it should be. Only game players tend to climb the greasy pole.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to all your reports/entire department, not just those you favour on a personal basis.

    Pros

    Taylor Wessing is a great place to work at. Dynamic, strong team culture, purposeful. Bright and energetic fee earners. It's small enough for your contributions to be visible and appreciated.
