    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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at LSE (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    The interview was in person with a panel working on or with the role being interviewed for. The questions were skills/experienced based and straight-forward per the desired skills listed on the JD. Seems one must tick all boxes to be successful, and should have talking points prepared for all in case asked at the interview.
