    I have been working at University of Cambridge full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    1. Good name /fame, and very positive for academia career, also attractive to some many other fields.
    2. Having plenty of resources / supports.
    3. Very academic environment.
    4. Nice people are everywhere (of course they are always not-very-nice people).
    5. Pretty town.
    6. Excellent work-life balance.
    That is just in general. But many academia people work insanely to get more contributions.
    And if you are working under such a boss, you wont have 'life' much but mostly only 'work'.
    7. Decent pay in academia field.
    BUT, academia is not paying well compared to many other fields! <= this can be a con for different people.

    Cons

    1. The very organized system means less flexibility (slow processing on almost everything).
    2. Working environment largely vary from department to department.
    3. This means funding/resources/access to public/research opportunities vary a lot (the name of the University is not everything, the group, the connection, the already-have resources are more important.)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I cannot say much about this.
    My boss has done his best on his job.
    That is academia, and you just need to have the correct expectation.
