Pros

Awesome - AWESOME - bennies and environment. Headline salary trails somewhat but total comp is one of the very, very best. A place you could happily finish your career.

Cons

Very little job knowledge learning applicable outside Stanford. Internal administrative infrastructure and procedure is dated and very, very slowly catching up. A place you may have to finish your career.

    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

    Your 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!

    Pros

    You definitely feel like you are part of something great when you look at all the research and innovation going on around you. Always so much going on - free lectures and conferences on fascinating topics. Great health benefits. Great employee incentives for staying active and healthy, including deeply discounted fitness classes on campus. Free Caltrain and VTA passes.

    Cons

    Some dysfunction in groups and administration, but that is common everywhere. Parking and getting to buildings in the middle of campus can be difficult and time consuming, but not enough to deter anyone from working there.
