Former Employee - Library Specialist in Stanford, CA

I worked at Stanford University full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Nice place and nice co-workers. Lots of added amenities to facility usage (fitness gyms, swimming pool, tracks, access to all libraries, discounts to events on campus, free to audit classes -- it is a biggie since Stanford charges a bunch for John Joe from the street to listen in in a class) and being in the center of the cutting edge of all studies of the human world.

Cons

Salary and benefits (medical, dental, vision, sick leave and vacation leave, etc.) subpar to City and County libraries. It's however, comparable to other University settings like UC Berkeley
