Cons

(1) The living cost is pretty high there.
(2) Public transportation system is not very good around the town. Basically, driving is required if not living in the campus.

    I have been working at Princeton University full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Ivy league institute with knowledgeable and field-leading researchers. The benefits are great, parking is free and the campus is beautiful.

    Cons

    Lack of a directly affiliated hospital means biomedical/translational research is limited . Hence, there is a heavy focus on fundamental basic science. Campus and Princeton at large can feel exceedingly slow if you come from a big city.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up good work and expand the scope of the biological sciences, especially in genomics.

    Recommends
    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
  2. Great school for grad students

    I have been working at Princeton University

    Pros

    I am in one of the physical sciences. Princeton has top-notch people and resources that make research life exciting and interesting.

    Cons

    While work-life balance is good (depending on your advisor - mine is good), there is not much nearby to do for fun for a grad student. Most of us go to NY, New Brunswick, or Philly for fun. A car is very helpful.
