I worked at Cornell University full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Generous in allowing me 4 years of leave time, pay for a physics grad student much higher than most universities, has community activities like the winter party where the first years put on skits.

Cons

Professors are very distant in classroom setting, I wanted to do a research project that was in another field with a physics professor but couldn't.
