    Pros

    I had an amazing time learning from some of the best social science researchers in the world. I learned a tremendous amount about how to produce and critically assess high quality research.

    Cons

    I had a great experience at LSE Health, but a lot probably depends on the research center that you are affiliated with. LSE Health was efficient, open, and an overall great place to work. However, I can't speak for other LSE research centers.

    Advice to Management

    I think more could be done to create a more cohesive community. As a low level researcher working primarily on my own, I didn't get to know a lot of my colleagues.

    Interview

    Online application on the University's Career Portal. Heard back after about two months. Single stage interview with the Project Manager. Interview was laid back and all about the job and how I would be interested. The offer was extended immediately following the interview.
