  • Anonymous@3.27am - I've been at the firm for 8 years and can confirm there is no way Mcgrigors remotely resembles the place it once used to be.

  • The atmosphere in Belfast is one of fear! No one knows what the hell is happening but further job losses seem likely. agreeing employment T&Cs with McGrigors after the merger was like pulling teeth with a rusty spoon but a few months later they can't even maintain job levels. What next.......???

  • i'm ex-Mcg and not a huge fan of the management there. I spent 4 years working in one offiice and billed well each year. I bumped into the managing partner one morning and he asked if I had seen a fee earner with my name.....? Arrogant clowns with zero business skills.!!

  • mostly good people there below p'ship level (some good p'ners too) but I agree with the mismanagement and partner/fee earner ration comments.

  • A McGrigors board member who is also the head of one of the teams worst hit by these job losses was so concerned about his staff, that on the day of the announcement he was to be found holidaying in the Caribbean.

    Nice touch.

  • What way is this firm being run? Redundancies yet they went to St Andrews for the partners conference all flash and no substance!
