Simmons throws out associate PQE model for merit-based system
Simmons & Simmons is ending its post-qualification experience (PQE) model for associate pay and moving to an entirely merit-based system from 1 May. The City law firm's management committee has given the final go-ahead to proposals to usher in the model, which will see the firm entirely abandon the lockstep system that sees assistant pay increase based on experience. The decision was made last month after a consultation with associates.
