Great place to work for work-life balane

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Palo Alto, CA

ProsLots of variety, work around smart people, beautiful campus, great benefits. Stanford cares about its employees, offering wellness opportunities, lots of transportation alternatives, expects that you have a life outside of work.

ConsNon-profit employer, so lower pay and bonus opportunities. Consensus style management makes decision making a bit slower, although not impossible to get things done.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
