Pros

Top University, great weather year round, diverse crowd. Good pay and great benefits.
Stanford takes good care of it's employees, lots of free courses and possibilities for advancement.
Located in the middle of high tech hub, provides good contact with companies around.

Cons

The place is huge, one can get lost there easily if you don't have clear priority. Lots of management type people with snobby attitude, oh and reach students of course. The salary could be better, espesially taking into account how expensive living in this area is.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Provide more opportunities for employees to mingle and learn what each other is doing. Try to match salary to companies in the area, otherwise people will be always looking for greener grass.

    Pros

    The retirement benefits are excellent. Some of the perks are really nice. If you happen to work on campus, I understand that the professional development is excellent.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, if you don't happen to work on campus, the professional development is nonexistent. Our management did nothing to invest in our careers or skills. As a result, the longer anyone worked there, the further behind their skill set slipped.
