Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Great benefits & access to Stanford resources e.g., professional development resources, BeWell health initiatives, CalTrain GOPass, etc.

Cons

Limited career progression i.e., promotion into a higher-level position. Salary is bounded based on position so with lack of promotion opportunities, ceiling is much lower than in industry and is often hit.

Advice to Management

Increasing bureaucracy e.g., re-vamped but more convoluted performance evaluation system.

    Pros

    First the curriculum is good and students and professors are all awesome. And the devices here are also very excellent. And the location is near the silicon valley, so it is pretty easy to get a job.

    Cons

    There are not many obvious bad things here. The only bad thing is that the tuition here is incredibly high and everything you want to buy here is expensive
