I worked at Stanford University as a contractor for more than a year

Pros

Beautiful campus. It's so nice to be around young intellectuals with ambitious goals.

Cons

Management is slow to implement new approaches, VERY bureaucratic. Most positions are filled by overqualified candidates who have plans to stay with the company long-term.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more flexible and open-minded.

    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.
