I worked at Stanford University full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

a great place to work...until it wasn't

Cons

too expensive to live close to work, lots of people commute from all over the bay area, east bay, san jose & south, adding to work/life imbalance

Advice to Management

treat all staff with human kindness, and don't lay off dedicated workers

    Pay is a little lower than industry. Still many layers of bureaucracy. Job stability depends on available funding.

    Stanford is an open environment full of smart and motivated people. There are great benefits for employees, including retirement, health care, additional career training, and transportation. There is great support for a good work/life balance.

    The opportunities for job growth/advancement could be better. Outside of individual labs, change can be slow due to the size of the organization.
