    I have been working at Stanford University full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Health benefits, name recognition, money for equipment, paid holidays. You will work with brilliant and dedicated physicians. People come from around the world to check out programs at Stanford. Employees working in areas outside the school of medicine seem much happier than those inside it.

    Cons

    Sociopathic managers, poor salary, no advancement, poor work-life balance. Many managers answer to essentially no one. Micromanagement and nasty emails are rampant. Working harder or doing better work does not result in better treatment. Turnover in my department was over 50% during my time there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to high turnover rates in specific departments, treat staff with the same respect as faculty, improve mechanisms for identifying and addressing abusive managers
