I have been working at Stanford University

Pros

Stanford is a wonderful place with a million resources. I also met amazing, intelligent people, and found my life's passion.

Cons

Tenure professors can be extremely comfortable with their positions to care about what goes on in the lab. I had a terrible experiences because of bad management

    I have been working at Stanford University full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    It pays relatively well for a student compared with other places.
    It provides nice study and living environment, good on-campus housing, convenient facilities, etc.

    Cons

    The students life here is really competitive. A lot of them have to struggle on their own risky project.

    I have been working at Stanford University full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Prestigious name, beautiful campus & facilities, decent benefits.

    Cons

    Mediocre pay, VERY political, little or no respect for long-time employees. Administrators are more concerned with covering their rears and impressing superiors than they are about doing the right things. HR is a joke.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stanford is Stanford because of it's people - not because of it's policies. Take care of your people.
