    Pros

    You get "Cambridge" on your CV. The college system is good.

    Cons

    Work environment varies hugely depending on department, but expect outdated system and infrastructure, lack of support, and academic snobbishness. Mistreatment by supervisors are common and simply considered as "that's what it takes to make it in academia".
