Pros

This is the elite of academia Profit is not the motive training and professional adv budgets are good currently college tuition benefits for children of staff is re-imbursed at 50% of Stanford tuition

Cons

It can get political - various kingdoms I have been seeking career advancement on a technical (non managerial) track and was assured by the director 4 years ago this was possible. Well, 4 years ago I am still waiting for an update in my job title (I have increased my value via certifications and accomplishments 10x)

Advice to Management

trickle down have an outing with your staff (besides an icecream social in the office)

    Pros

    Stanford is good at Research and Teaching. Hence, if you are not a researcher or a teacher, you do not have the work pressure. SO you would have much Personal Time. The benefit is fine, even the salary is lower than industry. Additional, you got chances to audit good classes for free

    Cons

    Low pay comparing with industry

    Advice to Management

    Need improve leadership and management skills

    Pros

    A lot of flexibility to cultivate experience and advance within the organization. If you work for the Athletics Dept. you receive season tickets for many and/or all games.

    Cons

    Parking can be a challenge depending on location. There can be a lot of elitism and politics (but what organization doesn't have that).

    Advice to Management

    Not enough interaction to have input on.
