Positive Outlook
Approves of CEO

I have been working at Stanford University full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Near European quality of health and retirement benefits

Great choice of health insurances, from Kaiser to Blue Shield.
Retirement managers TIAA/CREF brought me through the 2008/2009 debacle, but if you want to risk more, they also have Fi9delity

Cons

I did not find anything beyond petty grievances, you can make up about any emp-loyer.

Advice to Management

Do not try to control everything and everybody, including access to the swimming pools.
The TSA mentality has crept up in Stanford.
Disgusting.
