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

Software Engineer (Former Employee)
Palo Alto, CA

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

    Great place to work but little on-campus career opportunities for non-tenure track staff

    Staff Scientist (Former Employee)
    Stanford, CA

    I worked at Stanford University full-time for more than 3 years


    Pros: Bright people and interesting research projects, beautiful walkable campus, a lot of dining and recreation opportunities, 24 vacation days per year starting second year… Cons: Despite enormous endowment administration is not willing to invest university money into research infrastructure, waiting for grant funding which has been abysmal in past few… Advice to Senior Management: Invest more money into development of shared research facilities and do better job… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
