Pros

Perceived as being of high quality. Coming from Stanford will open a lot of interview doors and opportunities down the road

Cons

Many labs are large, and very little attention is paid to career development by PIs. If your work isn't going to Science Nature or Cell, it will frequently languish and not get published, really hurting your competitiveness for future job opportunities

    Pros

    nice environment to work in, positive teammates.

    Cons

    poor management, and employers, poor planning and no concern for employees also no follow through on problems nor resolutions to issues that arose.

    Advice to Management

    get things in order for on boarding, before bringing employees on
