    I worked at Caltech (California) part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Caltech is a great community of people who love and support science. People are very friendly and willing to help. I worked in a lab the year after I graduated from there with my undergraduate degree and had fun.

    Cons

    I can't really think of any cons for working here. As an undergrad, I noticed some sexism. If you're interacting with students, they're often very stressed out.
