    I worked at LSE part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very flexible, well paid, well-located, interesting. I would recommend it to students who want to earn some extra money, put something in their CV and learn about the subject the research is about. You can work from home.

    Cons

    Sometimes the work is tedious, there is no office to work in, they pay the month after the work has been done.

    Pros

    The professors are all at the forefront of their academic fields and generally have their own publications. There is a great amount of diversity, which gives it a truly universal feel. I worked for the Student's Union and they are by far the most influential group on campus and are constantly planning events throughout the year. Working for LSE is a great way to complement your studies and is a huge resume booster if you're doing research.

    Cons

    Sometimes the teaching load can be tough
