    I worked at Dartmouth full-time

    Pros

    - Being a well-funded private school, Dartmouth has excellent resources, pay, facilities and support. I was amazed by how many college funded workshops, talks, events etc there was. The college is very generous.

    - Hanover is a beautiful historic town, surrounded by gorgeous wilderness. Lots of options for hiking and outdoor activities.

    - Excellent academic research. Fantastic support for academic research as well.

    - Students here are highly motivated and very rewarding to teach.

    - Nice and quiet small town to get lots of work done. Plenty of spaces in the library, your office building etc to work in.

    Cons

    - They have a diversity issue. The president of the college publicly acknowledged that the college has a problem with regards to minorities not being hired. That being said, they are actively trying to rectify this situation.

    - There is a recent, very public, sexual misconduct scandal involving three white male professors, with accusations that goes back many years. This reflects badly on the work environment and culture. Again, they have been forthright about this and is actively trying to rectify the problem.

    - Being a tiny town, the social scene is abysmal. This is especially true for Postdocs and their family members, who might not be able to socialize with undergraduates. However, there has been a recent move to try and incorporate postdocs into the PhD students social scene.

    I have heard speakers at college talks saying, "New England communities are generally quite difficult to break into" and "the worse person to be here is a single postdoc, the social scene is absolutely abysmal for them" etc.

    - You need to have a car or take the bus to reach supermarkets and shops with cheap household products, which are mostly located out of town. The buses do not run on weekends, and stop running around 6 pm in the evening.

    - Living costs in Hanover itself can be rather high.
