Pros

They have a very helpful career center for postdocs. The career center provides seminars as well as one on one meeting with counselors. The health care benefits are decent. The campus is very pretty, with many outdoor areas. Many options for food on campus.

Cons

As a postdoc, you are not considered a full employee of the University. Therefore, a postdoc does not receive the same benefits as a full time Stanford employee. There is a fee for parking, and the cheaper options means there is a long walk to most buildings. While the food on campus is good, it is a little expensive.

Advice to Management

There are not many career opportunities for postdocs to stay at Stanford.

    Pros

    Great environment for any one who devoted her/his life to research and knowledge, in general. The place to be if you want to do great research and be immersed in the intense intellectual life. One of the cross-roads of so many lines of thought and scientific directions. Here you are involved in the cutting-edge research, have a chance to interact with best of the best - Stanford own and world-wide.

    Cons

    Shares all common problems of science and research - lack of funding, projects ending due to lack of support.
    The new buildings are not well-suited for research and teaching, as weird as it sounds. The lab and office space is scarce, for the sake of huge atrium and other LEED features and amenities.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the lower management, faculty, and researchers. Those people have their boots on the ground, do not ignore them.
