      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.

      Pros

      I worked in a research centre at LSE and greatly enjoyed my time there. The staff is passionate and dedicated about their research. The schools is in a beautiful location and the centre is always up to date with the best technology.

      Cons

      Being in the centre of the city of London, transportation can get expensive. Additionally, pubs and restaurants surrounding the area are also very pricey.
