Pros

Great research facility, brilliant faculty mentors, excellent research opportunities, and great potential for academic growth.

Cons

Not much contact with non-academic world, postdoc salary is good, but benefits are not great, no work-life balance (typical of any academic position I supposed)

    Pros

    The workload is manageable, the pay is excellent for the area. Responsibilities are reasonable and the goals expected are realistic.

    Cons

    The volume of work is directly related to the customer base. If there is a slow season, work becomes repetitive and mundane. If there is a large upswing, overtime may be required and days can be hectic

    Pros

    Stanford possesses extremely innovative academic and workplace cultures. Co-workers embrace collaboration and managers offer consistent support around initiatives.

    Cons

    The environment is expansive and that can introduce numerous challenges with respect to knowledge sharing. People do make active attempts at forming groups and events to address this issue, but there is some room for improvement.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up.
