I worked at Stanford University as a contractor (less than a year)

Pros

Pay is good, you submit your hours, and the job is easy.

Cons

Office politics and bureaucracy. High turnover of contracted/temporary employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Your departments have grown too big and politics have compromised the amount of honest workflow. There's nothing you can do because everyone there is a lifer protecting their retirement.

Doesn't Recommend
Positive Outlook
Disapproves of CEO
