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

Pros

great climate, great benefits, surrounded by smart people from all over the world

Cons

Research is challenging; many of the labs constantly push for high quality papers

Advice to Management

There are a multitude of resources on campus for postdocs; sometimes it's hard to remember which one's are available. Advice would be to make all of the resources at Stanford more available

    I worked at Stanford University part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    everyone is very friendly and happy to be working there. an excellent community

    Cons

    they could pay us a bit more...

    Advice to Management

    I find it odd that other students get paid a starting rate of $13/hr for pointing a video camera at a professor (for classes to post lectures online), while tour guides must learn upwards of a 400 page manual on campus/history/etc. and must be "on-it at all times" while giving tours, but our starting salary is much lower. I loved being a tour guide and the position truly enriched my experience at Stanford, but that aspect did always seem strange to me...just a thought...
