I worked at Stanford University full-time (More than a year)

Pros

very good and friendly colleagues to work with. Lots of americans on the department that I worked for and teammates help other team members a lot. At times, tasks are very challenging, and it will be good experience to learn rapid multitasking and improve productivity. monthly get togethers with the team, free drinks and lots of snacks during the afternoon time that is shared by other team members. overall, a very different experience to work here.

Cons

Framework developed is used internally, and learning the framework takes time. lots of dynamic setup of the code, understanding all the pieces will be difficult for new developers, so networking with colleagues is really important here. Lots of multitasking on a single day, and compensation is low for the new developers with less experience. salary increase is low for developers.

    Pros

    Stanford University is filled with the most creative and innovative minds on the planet. The people are outgoing, the campus is a paradise, the pay is amazing, and the experience is one of a kind.

    The atmosphere is so forward thinking that it can sometimes be intimidating. People assume that everyone is as intelligent as they are and responsibilities may be given out too early.
