Current Employee - Postdoctoral Scholar in Stanford, CA

I have been working at Stanford University full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Very cutting edge science, lots of seminars and talks from top scientist from the world, a lot of freedom to do research

Cons

Lacking of direction in most of the time, PI spent most of their time writing grants, most PI don't care much about your career path

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make sure PIs help their postdoc's careers such as job search.
