    I worked at LSE

    Pros

    The professors are all at the forefront of their academic fields and generally have their own publications. There is a great amount of diversity, which gives it a truly universal feel. I worked for the Student's Union and they are by far the most influential group on campus and are constantly planning events throughout the year. Working for LSE is a great way to complement your studies and is a huge resume booster if you're doing research.

    Cons

    Sometimes the teaching load can be tough

    I worked at LSE as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    The office culture is very supportive, and management knows how to bring out the best of each individual. That removed a lot of stress and made the job very pleasant.

    Cons

    I can't think of anything, except for the break room was too small! Plus, I was on a short-term contract, and it had to end!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on doing.

    I have been working at LSE

    Pros

    Has a solid set pay structure with generous annual leave (especially considering the additional school closure at Easter and Christmas). Provides plenty of opportunities to learn with grants offered if you want to pursue any courses or training in your spare time.

    Cons

    Each department feels like it operates on its own. Results in very little interaction and coordination with inconsistent policies across departments.

    Eh

    I worked at LSE part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    It's a beautiful and well-known university at the heart of London

    Cons

    Professors were less impressive that I expected- could just have been my department

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to generally be less dysfunctional! Don't push beloved professors out (by say, cutting their well-attended class in their area of specialty and forcing them to teach large lecture intro classes), even if they are a bit ornery and maybe try working in a company sometime to make your work a bit more relevant.
