I worked at Stanford University full-time (more than an year)

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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Great benefits and access to campus facilities, including library, dining, athletics and fitness programs. Also access to some campus courses and training programs. Stanford also has a progressive transportation program, providing incentives for alternative commutes, including free passes for Caltrain and local bus networks.

    Cons

    Although it's a beautiful campus, it's a large campus to get around, so be prepared to coordinate shuttle buses, walk, or ride a bike.
