    I have been working at Emory University full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great location, good size, lots of access to interesting events

    Cons

    I was not a good fit for the research lab I was in. While others seemed to be happy sitting silently at their cubicles all day, I felt like I needed more communication and collaboration with peers.

    My supervisor was also rather disengaged, and in general it seemed that nobody had any passion for what they were doing. I decided to leave because it was a depressing work environment.
