  • The place is a sinking ship and morale is at rock bottom. I personally feel they have done me a big favour by telling me they can't offer me a role. A year in Madrid to learn Spanish is a far better idea.

    Come on kids, train at Dentons! Where you have a less than one-in-seven chance of a job!

  • Unless things have changed in recent years, which seems unlikely given that changing a corporate culture is hard even when there is the will to do so. The first poster @ 4.56 is on the money, strange as it may seem in these troubled times, they have escaped before they to are sucked in. There are good reasons shy DWS has not made it to the top flight in the last 20 years

  • Absolutely agree with the first comment. Morale is rock bottom across the firm from trainee up to partner level. The firm has lost the majority of its decent lawyers and will struggle going forwards. The talent has gone. There are plenty of people waiting to jump ship as soon as the market picks up. Its a firm which will continue to slide.

  • Morale is not high - there's no feeling of the energy Dentons had in the past. Sad really.

  • You think being a lawyer is hard at DWS - try being a member of the support departments. Rounds of redundancies ever few months, no salery reviews for over 2 years - no bonus for over 2 either. Much like lawyers, once the job market improves (which it will - it always does) then talented support staff will be leaving the ship as soon as possible.
