    I have been working at LSE full-time

    Pros

    LSE is a world class institution which offers highly sort after and respected qualifications within the word of business and finance.

    Cons

    Like many elite universities, LSE suffers from poor student satisfaction, due to the heavy workload. It is also currently undergoing extensive building and refurbishment processes which mean that existing facilities (i.e. the library) are strained.

    Advice to Management

    Activity invest more money into building or (preferably) purchasing more student study spaces or even a second library, as it can be hard to find places to work, especially durring exam season.

    Application

    Interview

    Applied online, received the interview invitation by email and chose my timeslot approximately two weeks after. All the timeslot confirmation are confirmed by the system. There were three people in the panel and they were quick nice. The whole interview was very laid back.
