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

Pros

One 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.

Cons

Expensive 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.

    Pros

    Great opportunity to participate in world-class scientific research!

    Cons

    Plenty of politics to dodge, 'friends and family' hiring policies that significantly dilute the quality of the workforce.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    End 'friends and family' hiring practices. Flush the non-contributors.

    Pros

    The co-workers are amazing. There is a great collaborative workplace culture with always something new to learn and interesting professional development activities going on. The company benefits are quite comprehensive and include on-site access to fitness facilities. There is a strong support of work-life balance. Great public transit access in place with additional incentives for commuters.

    Cons

    Department goals can be presented better at times to promote employee buy-in at the junior levels and discourage workplace politics.
