I have been working at Duke University full-time

Pros

Awesome campus. Even more awesome weather, spring for about 9 months of year. Funding quite good, being a private school, at researcher better paid than most other places at these times of recession. Tenure track to getting tenure ratio decently high, though process can be strenous.

Cons

Some ultra rich and snobbish people. Durham not great to live in, housing close to the university limited, parking ultra expensive at University. Safety issues - some mugging incidents, specially during winter near University.
