The results of the RollOnFriday Firm of the Year 2019 survey are in.
Over 5,000 people working at UK law firms rated their firm's pay, career development, management, work-life balance, culture, loos and snacks. The results represent the definitive guide to which firms spark joy and which hoard sadness.
Mills & Reeve has been crowned RollOnFriday Firm of the Year 2019, while Ince Gordon Dadds receives the Golden Turd. But what about everyone else? Here are the overall results in all their glory:
The results can be interpreted as follows:
- 80% and above - Amazing
- 70-79% - Excellent
- 65-69% - Good
- 60-64% - OK
- 50-59% - Um
- 50% and below - Rancid!
65 firms feature in this year's survey results. Staff from a further 36 firms responded, but too few entered to justify their workplaces' inclusion in the final tally. In total, 49% of respondents were women, 45% were men and 6% were silent on their gender. Women and men scored their firms, on average, just about the same - a high 73% and 72% respectively. Staff who identified as 'other' or preferred not to specify their gender gave a much lower average score of 52%.
Most satisfied of all were the students, who were just happy to be there, or afraid to get caught slagging off the firm to RollOnFriday and blackballed. Next came the partners, who were just happy to be there, or afraid to get caught slagging off the firm to RollOnFriday and de-equitised. Trainees were also bright about their situation, a feeling which dissipated somewhat in the more senor non-partner bands.
