I have been working at Stanford University

Pros

You have flexible hours, scientific freedom, and are surrounded by some of the best scientists in the world.

Cons

It is very hard to get a permanent position as a PhD scientist (unless you are a prof), so think of it as a place to learn and then find somewhere else.

    I worked at Stanford University

    Pros

    This place has great weather, great restaurants, and a great working environment. The Bay area is a wonderful place to live.

    Cons

    It is a rather expensive place to live. The housing is expensive. California is politically dysfunctional. There are not four seasons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I do not have any particular advice for the Stanford leadership. They are doing a good job. It is not my position to judge.
