A bigger place than many people imagine somewhat obsessed with climbing league tables.

Research Fellow (Former Employee)
London, England (UK)

ProsThe opportunity to interact with some of the brightest people on the planet in one of the most exclusive parts of London.

ConsHaving to deal with some of the largest egos on the planet and finding that the culture is not collaborative but often destructively competitive.

Advice to Senior ManagementThis institution is not a for profit company accountable to shareholders in the model of a PLC so don't try to run it like one. That said, make it clear to people at all levels, both academic and non academic, how they are judged and how they are rewarded.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
