I worked at Stanford University full-time (more than an year)

Pros

very good and friendly colleagues to work with. Lots of americans on the department that I worked for and teammates help other team members a lot. At times, tasks are very challenging, and it will be good experience to learn rapid multitasking and improve productivity. monthly get togethers with the team, free drinks and lots of snacks during the afternoon time that is shared by other team members. overall, a very different experience to work here.

Cons

Framework developed is used internally, and learning the framework takes time. lots of dynamic setup of the code, understanding all the pieces will be difficult for new developers, so networking with colleagues is really important here. Lots of multitasking on a single day, and compensation is low for the new developers with less experience. salary increase is low for developers.

    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.
