Great Value

PhD Student (Former Employee)
Palo Alto, CA

ProsThe name of the university can get you anywhere and is internationally impressive. Many funding and resource opportunities, and a generally supportive environment from peers. Campus is so beautiful and proximity to stores and restaurants is great.

ConsYour individual experience really depends on your department and mentors. Everyone is really brilliant and driven, so at first (if you're a student), it may be intimidating--just stay motivated and confident!

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