    I have been working at University of Alberta part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great resources, great faculties and great place. You could enjoy all the lectures, talks from visiting researchers. People here are nice to cooperate with.

    Cons

    The location of Edmonton determins this cons... It is cold here in this city, and the winter could last for half the year. Anyways, it's only the weather, nothing about the academic side here.
