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

Pros

They keep up to date on benefits, etc. You can learn a lot about people and the right thing to do in life.

Cons

They don't always practice what they preach in always doing the right thing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

get more advise before making stupid mistakes that make everyone look bad. They put too many of the wrong people in charge.

    Current Employee - Basic Life Science Research Associate in Stanford, CA

    I have been working at Stanford University full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    In general there's great benefits, smart people and great perks such as free gym membership access, free Caltrain pass, etc all combined in a beautiful setting.

    Cons

    The potential for growth is limited like in any academic environment. Also, for the same reason, the salary benefits are not comparable to those of industry in a similar job.
