    I have been working at UMBC full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    compact campus; relatively less pressure; for the most part, you pressure comes from your advisor. If you got a pushing one, you will work a lot, otherwise you are on your own.

    Cons

    not much help you can get for your career from alumni etc.. Most senior professors are hard to find since they are too busy. In most cases you don't get to work in a team but on yourself.
