    I worked at Stanford University part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    some creative input, some flexibility for new programming, but ultimately constrained by

    Cons

    everything always has to be approved and re-approved by executives and the marketing department, even if you have the key expertise over an area. It's a little ridiculous. Sometimes you might feel that you are not trusted to do your job thoroughly, and that you would somehow try to soil the brand if given the opportunity.

    Meetings with management are extremely difficult to land, and you might get a cold email from a secretary telling you there is no time for an executive to discuss a certain matter with you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give students the time to talk when they need to talk. Meaning gets lost in email threads. Hear us out over the phone or schedule in-person meetings.
