It is what you make it.

Research Data Analyst (Current Employee)
Stanford, CA

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

ProsGreat benefits & access to Stanford resources e.g., professional development resources, BeWell health initiatives, CalTrain GOPass, etc.

ConsLimited career progression i.e., promotion into a higher-level position. Salary is bounded based on position so with lack of promotion opportunities, ceiling is much lower than in industry and is often hit.

Advice to Senior ManagementIncreasing bureaucracy e.g., re-vamped but more convoluted performance evaluation system.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
