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

Pros

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

Cons

Having 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 ManagementAdvice

This 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.
