    It is awesome.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThere is high quality education provided to each and every student in this institute be it be a poor scholarship holder or a rich lad.

    ConsThere is a lot of workload at LSE and technological use is maximal over here. Management requires things to be done before time which is difficult under heavy workload.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    world class institution, second class facilities, bureaucratic but kind and supportive

    Lecturer (Current Employee) London, England (UK)

    ProsThe brand has global prestige. The people are generally top-notch. There is a surprising lack of arrogance amongst most. The institution offers many courses and programs for faculty development.

    ConsTeaching load often too high to make much research happen during term time. Marking / grading process is ridiculously painful and archaic. Often concerns with standards and fairness mean that students are not learning as much as they should.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWork to remove bureaucracy as much as possible. Pay more to faculty in order to retain them. Currently faculty often need to work extra jobs - like summer school or consulting - simply to make ends meet in London.

    Positive, interesting and good for my CV

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) London, England (UK)

    ProsLearn for You - funding for study/activities unrelated to work
    Access to excellent learning facilities
    Great to work as a part-time student
    World class public speakers if you want to attend evening lectures

    ConsThere is not a huge amount of opportunity for progression.
    Like with any public sector orginisation change takes a long time.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore actively lead the change necessary to maintain LSE as a world class institution. In light of the money now being paid, to treat students as the customers they are with the respect and level of service they deserve.

    Proshiger reputation and well facilities and most professionals are well teaching and have good knowledge about finance and this is the best place to see how finance is run in London

    Prossupportive, friendly environment-respected in sector as place of excellence. Diverse nature of work motivating. Good work life balance and pleasant environment

    One of the best part-time work during university.

    Technical Consultant (Former Employee) London, England (UK)

    ProsGood hourly pay. Usually flexible hours. Priority for student halls accommodation. A variety of challenges and responsibilities. Valuable work experience.

    ConsSalary increments are standardised, therefore no performance-based rewards. No bonuses. Some management are useless, especially at student hall accommodation (e.g Trevor Murtagh).

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement seriously needs to change the approach of evaluating the performance of their staff. There have been cases of good employees being dismissed, while bad employees are kept. Time to wake up!

    Great place to work with lots to do.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) London, England (UK)

    ProsGreat pay package, excellent training opportunities and good people to work with within the IT Services. Laid back environment where things still tend to get done.

    ConsSometimes a lack of communication between people seem to slow down jobs a lot. Lots of things to do and not enough people to do them. Jobs tends to pile in during August and September where we have a backlog of new things to implement and replace so it seems at times there's no end to our work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire more people to actually get things done before the start of term.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
