    Recommends

    I have been working at LSE part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Working in an intellectually stimulating environment with high ranking faculties and with curious excited students.

    Cons

    Teaching is a bit underrated, and academics are encouraged to focus much more on research than on teaching.

    Advice to Management

    Give more attention to the needs of students and teachers. Make the exam marking process more manageable and fair to the students, by allowing more time to the examiners or hiring more examiners.

    I have been working at LSE for more than a year

    Pros

    World-leading institution that is filled with loads of interesting, intelligent, high-achieving people from around the world. Great brand recognition.

    Cons

    Little career development, exceptionally poor management from above, generally an unfriendly and unhelpful place to work in a day-to-day sense.

    Advice to Management

    Better management training for the School's leaders, reduce the layers of useless admin staff, better mood would lead to a more productive workplace, and get over yourself.
