I have been working at Stanford University

Pros

Great people, some innovation, the chance to take on new responsibilities. Wide array of event formats. Ability to introduce some change.

Cons

So-so pay. No upward mobility. No incentive. People who do nothing get treated almost the same as those who work incredibly hard and care about their work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't focus on the position focus on the person. Being told we don't look at the person, doesn't motivate.

    I have been working at Stanford University full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great employee benefits, beautiful campus, good work environment. Great opportunities for employee career advancement. The campus has a lot to offer, great activities, and events. Comfortable place and you work with really enthusiastic and diverse people.

    Cons

    Limited means of going up in certain projects; possibly to expand career with employee benefits (pay for school tuition, additional classes). There is a bit of the elitist attitude, but around only a few people. Overall, a lot of people tend to be more down to earth.
