Post-doc at Stanford University

Postdoctoral Scholar (Former Employee) Stanford, CA

ProsThey 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.

ConsAs 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 Senior ManagementThere are not many career opportunities for postdocs to stay at Stanford.

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