    I have been working at University of California

    Pros

    Relaxed, fairly friendly department with opportunities to maintain a healthy work - life balance. Location in beautiful Santa Barbara is a big draw.

    Cons

    Building facilities are aging and subpar.
    The high cost of living in Santa Barbara (particularly the rent) makes it a challenge to live on the wages paid to graduate student researchers.
    Budget cuts have reduced the number of invited seminar speakers in recent years, and faculty tend to show an interested in departmental events (seminars, etc.) only if they pertain to their particular area of research.
