Graduate School doesn't get much better than this

I have been working at Stanford University full-time for more than 3 years

ProsCreative, collaborative culture in an intellectually stimulating environment. Great access to great thinkers and to the tech industry nearby. Thriving start-up culture.

ConsExpense of living in Palo Alto for graduate students and post-docs, who are paid just enough to survive in the area.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
