Pros

Overall it is a stimulating intellectual environment where there is a lot of neat research, scientific development, advanced education, and cultural / community events.

Cons

Faculty and executives are treated differently than staff. They get high pay and some lucrative perks that are not available to staff. There is a disconnect between management and staff; some managers are not in tune with what their staff do.

Advice to Management

Pay is the best way to recognize and reward the staff that run your departments and programs. Low and zero pay increases are big dis-motivators. Eliminating one high level administrator position can save half-a-dozen staff jobs.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Stanford graduate school have a great reputation for academic placement. Plus it is hard to beat the Palo Alto location. If you enjoy the student life, and enjoy the northern California outdoors, then Stanford is the place for you.

    Cons

    Many professors do not care about advising grad students -- only publishing. This can vary by department, but is especially true in the sciences and engineering. Also, the quality of the teaching can be quite spotty. This can be especially disappointing considering Stanford's giant reputation and astronomical tuition.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more committed educators.
