No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

There are a lot of facilities available, with new equipment coming online all the time. Co-workers and supervisors are generally world-class, very smart. There really is a lot of interesting stuff going on everywhere. And, though it may not seem so from the inside, you can actually find research that is fairly applied if you want to.

Cons

As a grad student, it is clear that the administration is not set up to help you. Faculty and "students" (ie- undergrads) get most of the attention. Grad students are in sort of a nether realm and sometimes have to fight a bit for basic employee rights.

    It's a great university with a nice work environment at a beautiful location.
