Its more bad than good. If u r a heavy hitter they wont lose u. If u r **** they wont shame themselves by sending u. More like u r average or below average and they duno wat to do w u and then send u to keep u bz. The more senior n u r asked means u can kiss goodbye to partnership

If ronaldo is told that he will be loaned out to another team is that a hint that he should consider coaching instead?

Nope. If you were actually in B4 you will know it's sometimes good sometimes bad. They loan out top performing assocs quite often for a number of reasons -

will trainees normally be paid allowance during part B? because i noticed some firms mention it while others donít, not sure if itís usual practice but just omitted on some firmsí website or that some firms simply donít give allowance during part B?

also, we wonít be reimbursed for our part B fees and have to fork them out ourselves if we are not retained?

Have your contract prof taught you nothing? Look at your training contract, it's a CONTRACT.

Bigger firms generally give an honorarium during your part B ($500 ish only), it isn't that bad if you don't get an honorarium during Part B but it does say something about the firm's size that they do not make such payments. Some firms outrightly mention it, some firms don't bother to do so - you have to use your mouth and ask. But in general, if you're looking at bigger firms, you should have that payment.

Personally, I feel that it is more important to make sure your firm pays at least $1.5k (it's around 2k for the bigger firms like the big4) for TC, as any less means that the firm is really cheapskate.

And yes, if you aren't retained, you have to fork out the Part B and call fees. But honestly, if you aren't retained in the bigger firms, you should just start using the company time to find new jobs etc or at least try to go home on time (i.e. don't slog for the 1-2k TC payment if you aren't retained - they obviously don't value your time anyway). Also, just so it's clear, you should check that you are even reimbursed upon retention, as smaller firms do not even do so, do not assume every firm will reimburse you.
