    Pros

    Great students, central London location, renowned reputation. Opportunity to play a role in major public and policy debates. Focus on research

    Cons

    Apathy of tenured staff toward anyone non-tenured, salaries too law for location, poor communication between departments, not enough career support for early-career staff.

    Pros

    Best academic environment with excellent professors

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    support students with the advice and network of the alumni. The teaching is perfect
