    I have been working at LSE full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great benefits and perks, although pension is declining, great immediate colleagues. If you have the right line manager good work life balance and flexible working.

    Cons

    No respect for staff or their own employment policies, constant restructures and reorganisations that almost always result in loss of staff, problems with systemic bullying culture. Senior management are clueless in terms of strategy and staff consultations. Staff surveys regularly poor but management seem unable to effect change. Little opportunity for career progression....

    Advice to Management

    Start valuing your staff rather than paying lip service. Listen to them and actually DO something. Talk is cheap and your staff are smart enough to know that. Actually think through reorganisations and have a coherent longer term plan .

    Motivated employees working mostly on goodwill and some interesting work

    Employees undervalued by poor senior management, Professional services salaries no longer competitive and people stuck at same level for years without a payrise, disengaged and damaging academic attitudes, poor student and staff support

    Address your salary scales and show staff they are valued

    I have been working at LSE full-time

    Pros

    Great people. Fantastic brand and values. Good work-life balance.

    Cons

    Departments work in silos, which is not helped by senior management. More focus on academic development than on professional services development.

    Advice to Management

    Get the balance right between supporting Academics and Professional Services. More direction needed from top in terms of priorities for professional services departments.
