    Pros

    BeWell program - employees have monetary incentive to stay fit. Great retirement benefits. HR is very responsive. Free Caltrain Go passes.

    Cons

    Bureaucratic, feel like a small fish in a big pond. I work off-campus, so there is a disconnect with the central community. Parking can be a nightmare.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I wish there was more community bonding for all Stanford employees, across departments.
