    Pros

    Excellent resources, brilliant academic scientists, exciting research. numerous opportunities for postdocs to grow and explore various career paths (academia or industry). beautiful campus and flexible hours.

    Cons

    quality of lab/research is very dependent on the professor. my personal experience: professor mostly absent and poor unity in group. resources can be a bit scattered on campus and somewhat decentralized. parking on campus is pricey and the postdoc salary makes it difficult to make ends meet in the bay area.

    Advice to Management

    more resources for career building

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

    Pros

    Lots of support, great status, good benefits, access to amazing resources. One of the most beautiful campuses on earth, great food available, and many places to exercise in an absolutely phenomenal climate.

    Cons

    One of the most expensive places to live in the country / world. Bosses and mentors are self-selected to be workaholics, anti-social savants, and poorly-trained managers. There is lots of HR support if problems arise, but your experience will be heavily influence by the quality, ethics, and choices of your boss/mentor/PI.

    Advice to Management

    Enforce better management and mentorship training for professors who are expected to act as mentors/managers. Some of the management fails I have witness here are appalling. Word-class expertise in a specialty subject does not at all imply even a little aptitude for management skills or effective mentorship.
