Good place to work

Web Developer (Current Employee)
Stanford, CA

I have been working at Stanford University full-time for more than 10 years

ProsOne of the best universities in the world, you contribute to a great mission of education and research. Great benefits -- vacation, medical & dental, 403b retirement plan, access to use campus facilities, and a beautiful working environment on campus.

ConsExpensive cost of living in area, below market salaries for technology positions. The university can be slow to acknowledge exceptional performance with salary increases and promotions.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Overall good company to work for! Administrative Associates are not paid well.

Administrative Associate (Current Employee)
Palo Alto, CA

I have been working at Stanford University full-time for more than 5 years


Pros: -Employee benefits -Commute Incentives -Educational Funds -Beautiful campus -Great Events Cons: -Hiring relatives or friends for open positions is very common. No selection process in place. In turn, depts end up with inexperienced employees.… Advice to Senior Management: Stop hiring inexperienced family members and friends! Let's hire qualified applicants. HR needs to enforce the selection process. How will Stanford continue… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
