    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.

    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.
