    Former Employee - Part Time Research/Program Support in London, England (UK)

    I worked at LSE part-time (less than a 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.
