Poorly managed and snobbish institution. No possibility of promotion unless you fit the demographic criteria. Poorly paid and was left to go stale. Had to rebuild my confidence and career after working here.

Excellent first job after graduating and a great opportunity to develop. To have the company on my CV is really advantageous for future opportunities, providing a useful stepping stone in my career. The work/life balance was very accommodating which makes commuting less stressful and the job easier.

LBS is a great place to work, it has great values which in turn contribute to the fantastic culture across the School. There is so much learning to do across the School, and you are encouraged to sit in on Faculty lectures.

I have moved around a several departments as a temp at the London Business School and all teams differ slightly. Everyone is friendly and the work is relatively easy, but not challenging enough. However this can be said of all admin positions. The positions pay well and you have free access to a gym and pool, and many different lunch options.
Pros
Free gym and swim
Cons
work not challenging

London Business School is a somewhat bureaucratic organisation, however it provides a truly international work space and supports a great work life balance.

It all looks sleek and glossy to the outsider but when you are staff here it's awful.
Bullying is rampant here, they say it's "direct management ".

The management and HR here are both as bad. The only people who get promoted seem to do so by being friends with or toadying to upper management.

Most of the managers here are not experienced rather they are chosen as above and make it up as they go along.

Avoid this place for work. Don't take a job here you will regret it.
Pros
Free gym and pool
Cons
Bullying

Whilst on the job I was consistently under the impression that I was being micromanaged. This is not good for me when in an assistant role as I would like to learn and progress with some form of independence. Therefore, if management was better I may have enjoyed myself more on the job.

Unfortunately, this company lost good workers due to poor management.
Directors only promotes their friends whilst leaving other co-workers behind.

The culture is - suck up to the directors, otherwise your position will be on the line.
Pros
Good salary in admin
Cons
Poor management, low salary for level 1's
