Depending on which department you work in you find very nice people within LBS. very student focused and all about innovation and creating insights to better establish a growth environment.
Lack of investment in staff development
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.
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.
Free gym and pool
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.
I am a student of Sloan Masters of Leadership and Strategy. Focusing on strategy, leadership and change, and globalisation, London Business School’s Sloan Masters in Leadership and Strategy programme is specifically designed for senior, experienced, high-calibre professionals and executives. The Sloan Masters MSc. is only offered at MIT, LBS and Stanford business schools and is the most elite business degree available to seniors leaders.
Low program branding
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.
Good salary in admin

Hectic but friendly environment, everybody gets along and are friendly. During lunch you can sit next to the Dean, the Director or the cleaning staff No level rules.

Strict HR rules
London Business School, is a great place to start your career as the are so many learning curves which help to boost your knowledge and experience. The management are very supportive and help you develop and grow within your role. As any organisation there are politics, but it doesn't affect you doing your job. The organisation is expanding and the team have been split up to accommodate space.
