No opinion of CEO

I worked at Stanford University part-time (More than a year)

Pros

very receptive to life issues, not too many rules to stifle growth or outside of the box thinking, beautiful work environment, everyone was very friendly and supportive.

Cons

certain amount of bureaucracy is to be expected, occasional confusion as to what the exact process for assignment of tasks and the schedule for the completion of those tasks

Advice to Management

Make the application process more transparent, so as to be sure that no one accidentally misses some of the deadlines. Perhaps share the available positions more widely across campus.

    I worked at Stanford University part-time

    Pros

    Competitive pay. There is a lot of funding going here for projects and research. This is a highly recognized institution and will more than likely get you into the door with other academic institutions.

    Cons

    Hard to live in Palo Alto--way too expensive, even with a Stanford income. in addition, depending on your department, you may feel very isolated and on an island alone. For some people that is okay, but if you expect a dynamic team orientation you may want to think twice, or do your research first to see if the lab or department has bubbling personalities.

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice to management here.

    Pros

    Great institution and many resource and benefits for staff. Environment and work life can be great. Employee community is welcoming and warm.

    Cons

    Work life environment depends on your supervisor. Pay could be more competitive. If you have an ineffective supervisor, you will always have an ineffective supervisor. They do not change leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate those employees that choose to work with the University for a long period of time. Their wealth of institutional knowledge cannot easily be replaced.
