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

Pros

Stanford is a great place to be. As staff, you have access to a lot of cool things that happen on campus. The people you work with are engaged and committed, and it's a great environment.

Cons

I've heard that the Residential and Dining Enterprises staff are treated badly.

Advice to Management

Make ResEd better.

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

    Pros

    Intelligent and hard-working people everywhere, challenging and exciting research, all the infrastructure one could wish for.
    Beautiful campus, wonderful weather :)
    Having the Stanford background raises the bar for everything you will do afterwards. If you get the chance, just do it!

    Cons

    Low pay, could not afford their health insurance (over $2000 per month for a family!). Cost of living in the area is high.

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

    Pros

    Absolutely one of the most rewarding experiences in terms of employment. Great ability to exercise your own leadership and inter-personal abilities.

    The staff in our dorm are some of the most dedicated and hard working people I have ever met in my life.

    Cons

    Lack of free housing, and very low pay compared to other jobs on campus in terms of amount of work and hours for a certain salary.

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice to have the discretionary funds managed partially under the RAs rather than fully under the RFs.
