    Pro - The health benefit options were good because they gave you a ton of options that could fit your work/life needs, also good commuter/healthy living programs you can enroll in that help add some $$ to your paycheck. Con - Insurance premiums were kind of high, and the the base compensation package kind of sucks because their Union locks you in to a set scale.

    The 403b match! Saved so much more here than at my current employer who does not offer matching. Also, vacation accrues at a really quick pace after one year.

    The best benefit of working at Stanford is all the access you have at the university. The perks they give you are very good and are worth it.

    Decent time off - hours accrue more quickly the longer you are with the school; flexible work from home days

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Associate Director in Palo Alto, California

    Stanford's winter closure is a really nice luxury. Four holidays are given during this period, and the rest is required to come from your PTO, but some divisions (i.e. the Graduate School of Business) regularly give additional paid days off during this time so it doesn't have to come from your PTO. All of Stanford's benefits can be reviewed at the public Cardinal at Work site.
