Great place to do a postdoc

Postdoctoral Research Fellow (Current Employee)
Stanford, CA

ProsAs a postdoc researcher, your experience depends greatly on the lab you work in. At a place like Stanford, however, you will get access to some amazing resources and people as long as you don't have your head in the sand.

ConsThe pay is not great (as all postdoc pay goes). But it's supposedly a 'training period' so suck it up.

Advice to Senior ManagementDepends on your PI.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
