    Pros

    UC is famous for 80+ Nobel laureates and you can why it is so. All the departments are filled with some of the brightest minds. Amazing place to work

    Cons

    No well defined career paths in some departments. Especially non-scientific and technical positions.


  2. An interesting balance between academics and 'reality'

    Pros

    The U of C has a huge number of incredibly intelligent people, most of whom have a strong interest in their field and are very nice.

    Cons

    Though the people are very intelligent, they do not practice 'logical thinking' and 'human interaction' very well. There is a lot that goes wrong because everyone is thinking too far above the problem at hand.
