    Great students and location, but academic staff disinterested in anything beyond their narrow purview

    ConsApathy of tenured staff toward anyone non-tenured, salaries too law for location, poor communication between departments, not enough career support for early-career staff.

    Great reputation - unorganized career services

    ProsBest academic environment with excellent professors
    Excellent facilities
    In the center of London
    Huge Brand name in UK and globally

    ConsNot so organised in terms of career services
    The alumni is not so well connected with the university
    LSE should organise more events with firms, each department should do it

    Advice to Senior Managementsupport students with the advice and network of the alumni. The teaching is perfect
