I worked at University of Iowa as an intern

Pros

Strong sense of connection to the university as a whole (from staff and just about everyone in town)
Iowa City is a surprisingly great place to be (art, food, biking trails)
Research facilities are unbelievable

Cons

It's hard for non-tenured academics, especially research scientists -- pressure to get grants, etc
A few of the old research buildings can't hold a candle to the new ones
