The RollOnFriday Firm of the Year 2014 survey has opened, and hundreds of readers have answered the call. If you haven't, please fill in your 30 second form.

Lots of respondents have taken advantage of the optional comments box to sum up life in their workpod/corner office. See if you can identify which firms are being referred to in the following highlights*:

1. "There are associates who are so competitive that you have to regularly check your cup of tea just in case one of them has dropped rat poison into it."

2. "££££££. And then some more £££££."

3. "There's a holiday camp atmosphere as no-one cares any more."

4. "We keep getting mistaken for DFS."

5. "The Leeds office looks like somewhere Bob Cratchitt would have worked."

6. "By the time I have submitted this you will have been acquired."

7. "We have a variety of tea bags on offer so when things get really bad there are options in which to drown yourself."

8. "I can and do bitch about the effective paycut I've suffered, but honestly I love what I do way too much ever consider leaving. How many lawyers can say that?"
