    Current Employee - Free Roving Scientist in Stanford, CA

    I have been working at Stanford University full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Near European quality of health and retirement benefits

    Great choice of health insurances, from Kaiser to Blue Shield.
    Retirement managers TIAA/CREF brought me through the 2008/2009 debacle, but if you want to risk more, they also have Fi9delity

    Cons

    I did not find anything beyond petty grievances, you can make up about any emp-loyer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not try to control everything and everybody, including access to the swimming pools.
    The TSA mentality has crept up in Stanford.
    Disgusting.
