    I worked at LSE part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very flexible, well paid, well-located, interesting. I would recommend it to students who want to earn some extra money, put something in their CV and learn about the subject the research is about. You can work from home.

    Cons

    Sometimes the work is tedious, there is no office to work in, they pay the month after the work has been done.

    Pros

    Interesting place to work. A lot of events for staff and training in languages and sports offered at a reduced price. A small, centered university, so easy to meet a lot of people

    Cons

    Too much bureaucracy. Low pay for a lot of work. It is very hard to get promoted within the company as they have a high employee retention. A lot of office politics.
