  • Pinsents Bonus plan

    I think it's time to realise that trainees should be trainees and not fee-earning fodder, 2000 chargeable hours spread over 46 weeks (after bank holiday and annual leave) equates to over 8 1/2 chargeable hours per day.

    This is unrealistic in many practice areas. The work life balance is clearly not something Pinsents cares particularly about.

    I would remind the person who made the first comment that the 2,000 hours are not solely "chargeable" hours. As this article clearly explains, these hours also include training, internal research, marketing etc. A target of 8.5 hours is therefore much more attainable and certainly not a justified ground for claiming that Pinsent Masons does not care about an employee's work/life balance.

    I believe Pinsents should be applauded for being inclusive and giving trainees a stake in the business, especially as it shows that recognise the integral part trainees play.
