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

Pros

You're surrounded by brilliant people, everywhere. People are both laid back and extremely helpful and approachable, very realistic advice--even giving long term career advice outside of your position

Cons

Hierarchy often comes into play and the atmosphere can be a tad political at times but that's bound to happen anywhere

    Pros

    You get to meet many leaders in many disciplines. Any position at Stanford can easily be used to establish contacts in a desired field.

    Cons

    The administration is growing without any active discernment, and it wastes a lot of money. Look out for people who get their foot in and then try to bring in nepotistic connections for positions.
