Pros

Benefits (if you are full time) are pretty good. Big university behind you makes lots of things easier, like incentive programs for the train, library use, stability, etc.

Cons

Universities like this are turning into big corporations, and all the cons that go with this are predictable (inflated bureaucracy, unpredictability of funding,

    Pros

    Stanford has some of the smartest people in the world. Spending more than 5 years on a PhD is worth then every time spent in the University.

    Cons

    Expensive city. Even though the average income for RA's is higher than the National average..it is too small to maintain a decent lifestyle in this part of the country.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase pay for Research Assistants

    Pros

    Relaxed work environment; not micro-managed in terms of clocking in/out. Typically received at least 1 week off during the month of December each year.

    Cons

    There are too many people with too many different agendas. Some people who perform poorly are protected by those higher up within the organization. As a manager of these people, you simply cannot 'get rid' of them without cutting off your own neck.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to management at Stanford University is this - fairness goes a long way with keeping employee morale high and performance equally high and consistent.
