I worked at Stanford University

Pros

It's the best school in the world, in terms of quality of life and education value. I could not recommend it higher.

Cons

Insular culture, at times. The "duck syndrome" is very much part of the DNA. Also, some people are socially inept, but such is the case at any school.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continuing making the school a world leader.

    I have been working at Stanford University

    Pros

    The salary is very competitive particularly for a University. It is a prestige place to work and the weather is good.

    Cons

    Like any high ranking University you are going to come across a fair amount of arrogance. There seems to be a bit of backstabbing and uneeded politicking as well. I also find Stanford University very boring. It is beautiful but it just doesn't have a vibrant social scene like many other campuses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Many act like Stanford is a corporation it is not. It is a University and people who chose to work there vs a corporation expect to be treated more like a person than a cog. Some get this but many do not.
