I have been working at Stanford University full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Excellent resources, well funded institution. Progressive culture, amazingly beautiful campus. Diverse groups, top notch thinkers.

Cons

Expensive area, tendency toward highly specialized labor rather than broad tasks. Poor integration of staff and faculty, limited opportunities to take classes or develop skills outside of specific job requirements

Advice to Management

Create more robust feedback loop at all levels of staff involvement; create a different model of workflow that enables mid-level changes (meso) rather than macro/micro changes only

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

    Pros

    Awesome - AWESOME - bennies and environment. Headline salary trails somewhat but total comp is one of the very, very best. A place you could happily finish your career.

    Cons

    Very little job knowledge learning applicable outside Stanford. Internal administrative infrastructure and procedure is dated and very, very slowly catching up. A place you may have to finish your career.
