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

Pros

Anyone who is anyone comes to either be a professor here or to give seminars here so you will never have a shortage of experts to network and discuss your research with. The resources are endless here, not to mention that Stanford has some of the best weather for a university in the entire US.

Cons

Everyone is into big data high throughput anything, so true basic research can often be looked down upon as old-fashioned.

    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.
