I have been working at Cornell University full-time for more than a year

Pros

Lots of top professors, scientists, and researchers to collaborate with. The university has excellent atmosphere to discuss scientific questions. It also provides plenty of resources for various studies.

Cons

The campus locates in a small and relatively isolated town. The internet speed is much slower than most universities. The weather is too cold if you are from some warm places.
