    I have been working at Stanford University full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A lot of really smart people, great resources and diversity. You can really excel if you truly love science. The department is well funded. Free doughnut every Monday. Free tea, and sometimes free coffee, for all. People are very friendly and Professors are approachable.

    Cons

    Office environment of PhD students are not really conducive (no windows and sometimes can be stifling), but I guess the condition will be similar, if not worse, in other universities too.

    Advice to Management

    nil.
