Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

BeWell program - employees have monetary incentive to stay fit. Great retirement benefits. HR is very responsive. Free Caltrain Go passes.

Cons

Bureaucratic, feel like a small fish in a big pond. I work off-campus, so there is a disconnect with the central community. Parking can be a nightmare.

Advice to Management

I wish there was more community bonding for all Stanford employees, across departments.
