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

    Pros

    Amazing benefits and stability. You get to come to work with incredibly intelligent coworkers that really do keep you on your toes. The group I work in is pretty lax on working from home, which is great when you really want to focus and make progress on your current projects. They provide a massive amount of vacation and sick time as well, so there's never a feeling of being trapped.

    Cons

    People never leave and very, very rarely get removed from positions. While this is sometimes a good thing, it unfortunately leads to legacy culture and lax attitudes that get in the way of forward momentum.

    Advice to Management

    Hold people accountable for failing to meet milestones and deadlines. Hold people to higher standards and don't allow the negative influencers to poison the well.
