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

Pros

The 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.

Cons

Unfortunately, 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.

    I have been working at Stanford University part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great pay, support and environment for a summer ESL lecturer. The program was amazing, the students were diligent, and it was well structured. Easy to communicate with administrative staff--people cared. The other temporary staff was very experienced and professional.

    Cons

    Only that it was a temporary assignment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up!
