    I have been working at University of British Columbia full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great environment, both for working and academics. I got to be around some great and brilliant people, and learn a lot from them. They had a great balance for work, if you were getting your project done it didn't matter how much time you spent in the lab. The professor I worked under was outstanding, and understanding. I always felt that I wasn't doing enough and she always encouraged me.

    Cons

    Lower pay than industry standard ( I really think it opened more doors though).
