A controlled field will bring you up to speed quicker as you will dealing with all the facets of flying you will use later. If you start at an uncontrolled field you are more likely to have "brain fade" when confronted with a controller talking a mile-a-minute, especially during busy times (and you won't have any control over that). The more you learn, the sooner in your training the less likely you will develop bad habits. I still hear people on the radio talking to approach or tower and wonder how the heck they ever got their pilot licenses, unless they spend most of their flying at uncontrolled airports. Also remember that controllers are there to help not hinder your progress.
