I was a software developer at a subsidiary of the Stanford Libraries.

Software Engineer (Former Employee)
Palo Alto, CA

I worked at Stanford University full-time for more than 8 years

ProsThe retirement benefits are excellent. Some of the perks are really nice. If you happen to work on campus, I understand that the professional development is excellent.

ConsUnfortunately, if you don't happen to work on campus, the professional development is nonexistent. Our management did nothing to invest in our careers or skills. As a result, the longer anyone worked there, the further behind their skill set slipped.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
