I have been working at Stanford University as an intern

Pros

creative, capable and extremely helpful colleagues and mentors. you can learn as much from the people you work with as from the actual research itself.

Cons

there is no hand-holding involved, and although people will gladly help you, you are expected to figure things out on yourself. this is great for learning but also frustrating at times.

    Pros

    As 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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    Depends on your PI.
