Addleshaw Goddard Employee Review

Great for recent graduates

Excellent experience for recent graduates - you overall get excellent-quality of work, often for interesting FTSE100 clients and businesses. Also a great name to have on your CV. Often the work is trainee-level quality. Line managers and colleagues are also good overall.Only things that need major improvement is the pay. The pay is market at entry level but stops being competitive once you have 1-2 years experience. If you want a pay rise, you will need to prepare a very comprehensive and detailed business case to convince the firm to promote you. Once you gain significant experience at the firm, you will be tempted by recruiters offering you much higher pay elsewhere. Also, don't rely on getting a TC by working as a paralegal - internal TCs are very rarely given, and in practice you will need multiple years of experience working at the firm to be given a chance. Work for the firm because you want an excellent paralegal experience, great colleagues and a prestigious name on your CV. Working here will pretty much guarantee you a TC interview at any firm you want.

Productive and hard working

There is a high expectation to work outside of office hours but there are great opportunities for progression and development within the wider firm.

not bad

good people around, get help from all departments if needed. Small team so everyone knows each other, hours can change at any time so flexibility not guaranteed.
