    I worked at Stanford University full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Beautiful campus - clean, quiet, nice architecture. Very international. Strong student participation. Faculty are very innovative and inspiring. Great benefits. Tuition reimbursement program. Diverse activities offered on campus.

    Cons

    Not much cross-training or communication among departments. Deans and Management not on the same page. Management are seen as administrators, not Student Services Professionals. Faculty doesn't collaborate with Management. Funding goes to students, not to employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire professionals who are interested in Education, Student Services and Academic Development, not just people who are good on a computer.
