Former Employee - Sophomore College SCA in Stanford, CA
Former Employee - Sophomore College SCA in Stanford, CA

I worked at Stanford University as a contractor (less than an year)

Pros

Great for students; great funding; depending on the professor you're working with you can have a lot of freedom.

Cons

Sometimes communication isn't great. If you need something, you have to be explicitly clear about it. You also have to be clear about setting expectations about communication with professors and Sophomore College leadership. And make sure to clarify how much you're getting paid and when.

People running the program seem super stressed out all the time, which means it can be hard to put on a happy face for the students.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't depend on the professor to relay functional, financial information to students. Tell the students yourselves, otherwise there can easily be miscommunication.
