    I have been working at University of Cambridge full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The history and reputation of the university give it a great gravitational pull, so you will literally work and study with excellent people from around the world. It is located in a beautiful town, near to London, with a high quality of life.

    Cons

    The history and culture is have a lot of inertia, and most administrative decisions are made based on precedent. The complex interactions between colleges and departments, and the lack of a clear central authority, make for a diverse range of climates. None of these are "cons," per se, but they are important characteristic of the culture.
