    Approves of CEO

    I worked at LSE

    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.
