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.

    I have been working at Stanford University part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    You definitely feel like you are part of something great when you look at all the research and innovation going on around you. Always so much going on - free lectures and conferences on fascinating topics. Great health benefits. Great employee incentives for staying active and healthy, including deeply discounted fitness classes on campus. Free Caltrain and VTA passes.

    Cons

    Some dysfunction in groups and administration, but that is common everywhere. Parking and getting to buildings in the middle of campus can be difficult and time consuming, but not enough to deter anyone from working there.
