    I have been working at Stanford University as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Stanford on the whole seems okay. So,this review is specifically about The Dept. of Genetics if you are seeking employment there and doesn't Stanford University in general.

    Good place for young Post Docs and Graduate students.

    Cons

    This dept. generally lacks direction especially if you are looking for a full time employment.

    Some relatively new hiring managers are amateurs and tend to provide misleading information to hire potential employees. So watch out if they are painting a rosy picture abut your job role.

    Some P.I.s don't keep really keep good tabs on their groups and hence their management seem to crony with the companies for their own benefit.

    Advice to Management

    Look into who you are hiring for management positions and monitor how they hire people and what they promise to possible new hires.
