    Pros

    The LSHTM is a very nice place to work. The offices have a great atmosphere and everybody seems to be dedicated to their work.

    Cons

    Some of the work can feel quite repetitive. My work never varied over the months. However, this may differ depending on what role you hold.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The leadership was on the whole very good. I have no real feedback on how the management at the LSHTM could be improved.

    I have been working at London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine

    Pros

    Nice and relaxed working place.
    Great location.
    Very flexible with time, allows you to have good balance between life and work.

    Cons

    Not a very engaging work, you do not require a lot of skills and perhaps you will not learn a lot while you work there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is ok, I have never had a problem and they are very flexible. It is a small place so it is not easy to grow, but that's not the management's fault
