Great benefits, intelligent colleagues, independent thinkers

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Stanford, CA

ProsBest part of working at Stanford is the company of intellectuals and access to the best thinkers and researchers in the country/world. The benefits are great-- after the first year, there's more retirement benefits, and very generous health care and transport options. Stanford looks out for the well-being (physical and mental) health of their employees.

ConsMy immediate supervisor is not the best manager as he came through the ranks of research-- he's a great thinker/researcher, but doesn't know how to delegate or give useful feedback. The PI for the project is great-- very caring and looks out for his staff/grad students.

Advice to Senior ManagementFor the middle managers-- more training on how to manage teams and give productive feedback.

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

Time to work out in the day Nice people Ability to take free classes right here on campus Tons of places to eat on campus Stanford pays… Cons: For the bay area, you don't earn that much money. In my opinion, that's the only con. Obviously you won't get… Advice to Senior Management: Share the wealth. Give some bonuses!
