How much better is imperial than ucl?

I’m applying for civil engineering and have offers from both. I know imperial is more prestigious and has a better department, but of course it comes with a much higher workload from what I’ve seen. And correct me if I’m wrong, and a significantly worse work/social life balance. I’ve also heard that the quality of teaching is quit bad at ucl, especially in engineering.

Is imperial THAT much better that its worth all this? I mainly care about employment prospects after, and also want to not hate my uni experience.

And if I do undergrad at UCL, then go masters at imperial, is that as good as doing it all at imperial?
