    I have been working at Stanford University full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Intelligent and hard-working people everywhere, challenging and exciting research, all the infrastructure one could wish for.
    Beautiful campus, wonderful weather :)
    Having the Stanford background raises the bar for everything you will do afterwards. If you get the chance, just do it!

    Cons

    Low pay, could not afford their health insurance (over $2000 per month for a family!). Cost of living in the area is high.

    Pros

    Work with some of the top academics in their professional fields. Professors give RAs a lot of room to find efficient ways of collecting and analyzing data. The mentorship is really valuable.

    Cons

    The work can be repetitive at times.
