    Pros

    Your experience will vary greatly depending on your position and particular research center/group you will join. However, in general one can expect very good work environment with proper work/life balance, great colleagues and openness. As a programmer in research environment you will most likely be able to often float between groups and have a chance to contribute to multiple projects.

    Cons

    Salary and benefits are very much below the industry average. In non-IT departments be ready to learn and work on your own with very little structure and at a very uneven pace. As to be expected, leadership is focused on research and publishing, funds for equipment and software might be severely limited and technologies used will commonly be ancient. Salary is strictly based on work experience at the uni and you will often find (as is the case on most universities) that it is impossible to "go up" without spending a decade or two working at DTU. This can promote mediocrity and be a big problem for very ambitious people.
