Pros

Lots 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.

Cons

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

    Pros

    If you like little kids and being active all day, this would be a good place for you to work.

    The senior management is extremely disorganized, the work can get tiring and the pay is not that great.

    I have been working at Stanford University

    Pros

    You have flexible hours, scientific freedom, and are surrounded by some of the best scientists in the world.

    Cons

    It is very hard to get a permanent position as a PhD scientist (unless you are a prof), so think of it as a place to learn and then find somewhere else.
