I worked at Stanford University full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Good benefits, prestige, pleasant surroundings, intelligent colleagues, adequate salary, good work environment

Cons

I shouldn't generalize but it felt like a little too often there's a culture of keeping interactions pleasant at the expense of being sincere and direct, which can lead to some passive aggressiveness. That's not very much of a con, though, and it's a culture that could be found almost anywhere -- nor is it the worst. Really, I don't have any cons -- but I had to enter something!

Advice to Management

Watch out for phonies.

    I worked at Stanford University full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Atmosphere, flexible schedules, work life balance, company benefits, excellent culture.

    Cons

    Pay. The pay is lower than the average rate in the area, but I suppose that is to be expected of a Learning Institution. When I was there, there was also a salary freeze for 2-3 years. Once raises went back into place, it was pocket change. Literally.

    Advice to Management

    The pay often is not reflective of the cost of living in the area.
