    Pros

    Diverse group of extraordinary colleagues and students. So much knowledge and information right at your fingertips. Creative energy everywhere, especially thanks to all the efforts to build cross-functional and interdisciplinary research and teaching connections throughout the University. I do truly feel proud to be a faculty member at Stanford.

    Cons

    Like all organizations, it can be bureaucratic and slow, which is very much at odds with surrounding Silicon Valley.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue with the efforts to break down the silos and all the free exchange of ideas to flow through the University, allowing more creative collaboration.

    Pros

    Beautiful campus with access to various cultural and sporting events. Access to libraries and other facilities.

    Cons

    Inefficient systems. No clear career path or development for employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in better data management (e.g. accounting, student) systems, encourage greater collaboration across schools in terms of sharing best practices, provide career counseling (perhaps mentorship?) opportunities for employees.
