I found a really good graduate advisor who is able to respond quickly, meet regularly, and keep my work on track. He also emphasizes taking breaks and work life balance. In terms of pay, the stipend is good compared to the cost of living.
Sadly some advisors can be harsher and more demanding. Pay usually won't get you a one bedroom apartment and prices are going up, so you'll have to live with someone.

Great benefits package. Plenty of vacation and sick time with winter break thrown in on top of that
Beware of which department you work for. Many departments at Brown are notorious for making their staff work the equivalent of 1.5 to 2 jobs. This defeats the whole purpose of work/life balance and on top of it the pay is considerably lower than other universities

Great community, plenty of opportunities for professional development, amazing benefits
Work life balance depends on office and team you work with. Was expected to be on call outside of office hours, even though it was not a part of the job description.

Work life balance and they care about career growth
Pay can be on the lower but they have been increasing wages to retain talent and competitiveness
