I worked at University of Calgary full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Lots of fantastic professors who really do try to make significant contributions to their field(s) and are dedicated to training.
Great City.

Cons

No real support for students pre/post graduation. Training can be horrific if you get in the wrong lab... although I imagine that is the case for lots of places. The quality of people they hire is not the quality that they train (solely in regards to publication record/quality).
