    I have been working at Stanford University full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Stanford is very good school for education and research.
    Stanford has the best campus and plenty if resources.

    Cons

    For a research lab, the potential is more decided by the PI, and have not too much connection with the whole school. That is, the style of PI decided your future. After postdoc, for a researcher, there is less chance to be promoted. Many people might just work the whole life as the same title. The salary is less compare to company. It is hard to live in Stanford area. Most important, you can't see the hope of change. If you enjoy and satisfy with current condition, just work the same pace to retire. If want to change, find other way.
