Former Employee - Research Associate in Stanford, CA

I worked at Stanford University full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Very flexible work hours and some nice benefits

Cons

Most political place you will ever work and suprisingly very unethical. HR is only worried about being sued, which happens frequently. Layoffs are by just cause which leads to entitlement of employees and very little output.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Realize how unethcial of an organization you have created.
