Reviews by MinterEllison graduate employees
- starstarstarstarstar4.0GradAustralia surveyed 81 graduates working at MinterEllison. Read on to get an insider’s view on life as a graduate. 81 responses.
- The new building is fantastic and the leadership in my team sets realistic expectations and timeframes with our clients.
- Autonomy, collegiate atmosphere, non-hierarchical, development
- Great access to very experienced individuals and leaders of the industry
- The people. It is fantastic to work in an environment where the people truly support each other to achieve their potential.
- The type of work that I get to do (the biggest projects for great clients) and the people I work with (my Partners are the best in the industry in their fields).
- The firm does not celebrate its achievements enough. I feel that Minter Ellison is as good as any law firm in town, however that message has not always been effectively communicated to the market.
- Long hours from time to time
- Longer hours at work mean sacrificing some extracurricular activities in order to optimise work produce to supervisors and/or clients
- There are times when you don't have much control of workflow.
- The long working hours which is expected across the legal profession
What insiders say about…
This year has been a year of learning and development and I feel that I have been very fortunate to have been provided with a lot of opportunities to step outside my comfort zone, including appearing in court and assistance preparing advices to clients.
Solid, supportive culture. The senior lawyers often spend time with the juniors to ensure the entire team understands the 'big picture', and where their work fits into the deal. Socially, the after-hours firm culture is strong, particularly within those groups of lawyers who joined the firm in the same graduate intake.
I interviewed for a graduate position when I was a research clerk. I had to submit an online questionnaire, then have an interview with HR and a partner
I can't exactly remember now, however I remember that the focus wasn't just on my academics, but also about what extra-curricular activities I participated in. It was not just about how I could explain my academic credentials, a large part of the interview was about how I came across as a person holistically
Going through the graduate recruitment process is difficult when you are also trying to manage some of the tougher subjects at Uni My advice would be to get in early, attend the events that you can, see if you can make a valuable and genuine connection with someone in the firm at these drinks (not just trying to seek out HR to the expense of talking to someone who can provide invaluable insight into the firm and recruitment process) and distinguish yourself. Manage your graduate applications with your Uni workload. Also, don't prepare for a specific partner in the interview, you never know whether or not they might be busy on the day of your interview and might not be able to attend unexpectedly. Prepare for you interview with the intention of remaining true to yourself and who you are, whilst also having a general background of the who we are and what we stand for
Highly variable working hours. When a large amount of work is required, hours can be long. However, when an employee requires time for a particular reason, and voices that need, the firm really does make an effort to accommodate that need.
Free CBD platinum gym membership, various discounts with corporate partners, freebies, regular team morning teas, afternoon teas, drinks, as well as parties such as the end of financial year party and the Christmas party
The partners and senior lawyers at the firm are incredible lawyers. The hierarchy does not create boundaries and all of those at senior lawyers are approachable and great to learn from. I have received regular feedback on my work to date.
We have monthly continued learning sessions in our fields of expertise. These sessions allow us to meet the expectations of the law society to keep our practising certificates. Other than that, the training depends on the specific team.
Promotions really are based, like a lot of other firms, on the time spent at the firm. For that reason it is pretty standard.
Very impressed with flexibility with women working part time due to family commitments.
I have worked on a number of pro bono files and have been involved in a range of charity and communication activities, such as reading programs at local schools
No issues with dress code. We are in need of laptops in order to make working more flexible. Access to emails from personal mobiles would be really helpful for when out of the office.
