I have been working at LSE full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Location in London; high quality students to teach; flexibility in working hours; some control over work agenda; name recognition internationally; opportunity to influence public opinion; opportunity to meet opinion-leaders from around the world.

Cons

Salaries too low for cost of living in London; Tenure does not bring with it the same benefits it does in the US; autonomy as an instructor low compared with US; central management overly-directive at times.

    I have been working at LSE as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    There is high quality education provided to each and every student in this institute be it be a poor scholarship holder or a rich lad.

    Cons

    There is a lot of workload at LSE and technological use is maximal over here. Management requires things to be done before time which is difficult under heavy workload.
