Approves of CEO

I worked at Stanford University full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Stanford is very well-connected. Being part of Stanford allows you to experience many interactions that are only possible in few places in the world. People takes your work more seriously, so cherish that opportunity and make the best of it.

Cons

With great power comes great responsibility. People here works hard, so you are expected to do the same. Prepare to do anything necessary to make your project a success.

    Pros

    Great people, some innovation, the chance to take on new responsibilities. Wide array of event formats. Ability to introduce some change.

    Cons

    So-so pay. No upward mobility. No incentive. People who do nothing get treated almost the same as those who work incredibly hard and care about their work.

    Advice to Management

    Don't focus on the position focus on the person. Being told we don't look at the person, doesn't motivate.
