    I have been working at Stanford University

    Pros

    I really learn a lot about the field of work, but at the same time I discovered somethings I hate the most; work politics.

    Cons

    There are a lot of politics here, doesn't matter what department you work at. I am very fortunate to have a great supervisor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    some senior leadership members lack the ability to communicate with others. Often times, I'd say, most it comes off as being arrogant.

    I have been working at Stanford University

    Pros

    Great place for collaboration. Number of amazing postdocs who can run their own labs but still stuck here due to limited number of academic jobs.

    Cons

    No work life balance. "Work until you produce the beautiful graph and we dont care how mnay hours a week you put in" seems to be the motto of this place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please appreciate the fact that research is a noble cause and postdocs work for peanuts ! So please create a safety net and monitor the PI -postdoc relationships. Encourage postdoc committees that
    work like grad student committees.
