    I have been working at SUNY Albany

    Pros

    I liked that it was a big in situation that could offer lots of opportunity.

    Cons

    We had a reputation as a party school. So sometimes the actions of isolated groups of students could negatively reflect and affect the entire student body (ie, kegs and eggs, fountain day)

    Pros

    Great environment for learning the basics of working in a research laboratory. The academic setting is perfect for learning in a medium-pressure but challenging situation.

    Cons

    Summer seems to be the time where most full-time employees take their vacations so the lab environment was a little inconsistent.
