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

Pros

Love the benefits of having vacation, PTO, sick and winter shutdown. Great co-workers, really smart and want to do the right thing.

Cons

Pay $700+ per year for a parking permit - a license to hunt, not to park.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't talk out of both sides of your mouth. It's ridiculous to praise an employee for going above and beyond to provide customer service and then the next year ding that same employee for going above and beyond to provide customer service.

    Pros

    I really liked the staff I got to work with and the projects I was assigned to.

    Cons

    The deadlines for a lot of projects seemed unreasonable, and the interns could probably use more training in general.

    Very good

    Pros

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

    Cons

    It's in a fairly small city, so access to non-academic things is limited.
