I worked at Stanford University full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

The name of the university can get you anywhere and is internationally impressive. Many funding and resource opportunities, and a generally supportive environment from peers. Campus is so beautiful and proximity to stores and restaurants is great.

Cons

Your individual experience really depends on your department and mentors. Everyone is really brilliant and driven, so at first (if you're a student), it may be intimidating--just stay motivated and confident!

    I have been working at Stanford University full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Awesome - AWESOME - bennies and environment. Headline salary trails somewhat but total comp is one of the very, very best. A place you could happily finish your career.

    Cons

    Very little job knowledge learning applicable outside Stanford. Internal administrative infrastructure and procedure is dated and very, very slowly catching up. A place you may have to finish your career.

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Stanford University

    Pros

    Really fun job! EPGY as a whole is great for anyone that enjoys working with kids. Located on the beautiful Stanford campus.
    I really enjoyed myself the vast majority of time.

    Cons

    If you're working full time it can be hard to get away from campus. The job can leave you with awkward off time.
    Not really forgiving in terms of bad instructors, residents.
