Pros

Top research institution. Major city with lots of things to do out of work. Good mentors. Good collaborative working environment. Great weather.

Cons

Very expensive city, especially the Westwood area. Traffic is horrible to get around anywhere. Research funding budgets are being slashed across the board.
