Why such cynicism? Reply Link Anonymous 5 May 2009 at 17:55 Love the idea of a “sabbatical” where you get to work in an overseas office but for half the money. When I was with the firm we used to have to pay people extra to go and work in some of the more obscure offices – but thats the credit crunch I suppose! Still, better than redundancy – oh hang on they’re doing that too.. Reply Link Anonymous 5 May 2009 at 19:30 Today it was obvious inside the spin zone that they care less about us and more about headlines. The email from Duncan was a long, rambling mess. Now when I suggest I need my job to pay the mortgage instead of understanding I get “so you don’t care about the poor children”.

Reply Link Anonymous 8 May 2009 at 12:38 Yes, but at only 20% pay for the IMD scheme, it’s only really viable for those of us without mortgages. I wouldn’t call it a positive move either, the redundancies take place whether or not you sign up to the “voluntary” flex scheme and they’ve reserved the right to make further redundancies further down the line. There has been very little word from the partners what they’re doing to cut costs etc – as far as I’m aware they’re still making full drawings for the next financial year.

It all sounded good. Now that The Lawyer has written it up as outstanding, we’ve started asking specific questions and it’s not so pleasant under the surface. Not least because they don’t have answers for specifics. Clearly it was indeed about making it sound amazing to the press. Not a good week here.
