    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 Management

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