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

    Pros

    Great colleagues that are friendly and easy to work with. Also Gainesville is a wonderful city to live in. Very affordable, laid back and comfortable. If UF is not your permanent destination, then UF is a great stepping stone to whatever next academic or industrial position you might be looking at. HUGE network and connections. People are very easy to talk with and build relationships.

    Cons

    Not many, but I would say, only in very general terms, that the university tends to be a rather large entity that makes many policies, of which some tend to be not logical but inconvenient and not that flexible or open to feedback. But you can still easy have a wonderful life and work experience there since these defects tend to be just small spots on your windshield and not catastrophic cracks.
