    I have been working at LSE part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    As a research assistant (a position on the lower echelons of academia) there is still an incredibly respectful and collaborative feel.
    You have access to abundant resources and brilliant individuals.
    The pay is very good.

    Cons

    I only worked part time so didn't spend enough time to have any significant grievances.
