    Weather is the most challenging part. It is varying too much with snow for almost half a year and walking in snow for job becomes quite difficult.

    Pros

    Very good chemistry dept with excellent facilities, good environment. Opportunities to TA.

    Cons

    Nothing in particular; I did not want to live in Syracuse with my family so I commuted from a smaller nearby town, which worked well. I have heard that others lost TA position after ~4 years, but this was not my experience.
