What is health insurance like at DWF?

Pros

The people you work with are great - colleagues and clients included. The quality of work is also really good, lots of responsibility early on.

Cons

Base salary is low. No bonus (or 3% if you are lucky!). No health insurance cover for Solicitors.

Advice to Management

Review salaries properly and align to our market competitors. Health insurance should be a given! Bonus would be great too. Otherwise there will be lack of motivation and you will ultimately lose talent.

No health insurance cover for Solicitors.

Does DWF offer malpractice insurance?

Pros

Great colleagues , for the most part

Cons

UK centric, bureaucratic nightmare, below market pay. DWF purchased my previous employer only to make us all redundant less two years later, along with the rest of non-insurance lawyers in Australia after burning out good people. The announcement that 100 people would lose their jobs was made via a 3 minute video after business hours.

Advice to Management

Don’t bother with the worldwide expansion, just stick to the UK.
