I have been working at University of Chicago as an intern (More than 3 years)

Pros

The U of C has a huge number of incredibly intelligent people, most of whom have a strong interest in their field and are very nice.

Cons

Though the people are very intelligent, they do not practice 'logical thinking' and 'human interaction' very well. There is a lot that goes wrong because everyone is thinking too far above the problem at hand.
