                    Pros

                    I had a lot of freedom and support in performing research in the projects that were handed to me by the professor. He also guided me when I was stuck or in doubt.

                    Cons

                    The particular professor I worked under was bad at handling the bureaucracy and administrative side of managing a lab, so I had to ask around a lot for how to deal with formalities and such, which was a constant hassle.

                      Can’t think of any. Some of the staff are friendly.

                      Cons

                      Admin can be quite racist (preferring particular racial backgrounds over performance). Claims to be 99 percent international but mostly everyone of the international people come from mainland China.
