    I have been working at Stanford University

    Pros

    Great people. No day is the same. Everyone is appreciative of your work and hours are flexible as long as you do your assigned tasks. The office is always excited to admit the upcoming class, and such excitement pervades throughout the office year-round.

    Cons

    Emotionally draining at times. Calls may seem repetitive. Hours vary depending on the season.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Adapt to a changing environment.

    Pros

    Excellent professors and excellent classes. Awesome facilities for doing an experimental work. Weekly seminar relevant to your research. Frequent career fairs.

    Cons

    electrical engineering qualifying exam does not really test your qualification. You can be the last in one year and the first, the year after!
