Productive and fun workplace

Working for Lexington at Slaught & May was a great opportunity to work with one of the biggest catering companies in London, with a good team and meeting nice people. The company invests in its employees and offers them the chance to develop their skills and careers.

I was very happy to be at Slaughter & May. I worked long hours but the experience was overall very good. I would be very happy to work there again as I enjoyed it the first time.

Management very staff orientated

A typical day would be to check in with the Partner and Lawyers for the days work and check deadlines progress. All legal secretaries work as a team helping each other. Reason for leaving is moving to New York USA.

Pros

staff restaurant
