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

    Pros

    Excellent resources, well funded institution. Progressive culture, amazingly beautiful campus. Diverse groups, top notch thinkers.

    Cons

    Expensive area, tendency toward highly specialized labor rather than broad tasks. Poor integration of staff and faculty, limited opportunities to take classes or develop skills outside of specific job requirements

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create more robust feedback loop at all levels of staff involvement; create a different model of workflow that enables mid-level changes (meso) rather than macro/micro changes only

    I have been working at Stanford University

    Pros

    The culture is open and friendly. Collaboration is encouraged. The Kitchenette is well stocked with lots of tea and coffee options. The technical support is well managed and easily accessible. It is a joy to come to work each morning because I know I will be doing important work alongside the premier scholars in the field.

    Cons

    The work is flexible enough so that many workers can work from home. While this adds flexibility, it means that not everyone is in the office, which can detract from the community.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are many centers within CHP, but I only know the workers within my own center. It would be beneficial to host more inter-department events to further collaboration and interaction with everyone in the center.
