Excellent employers

Admission Counselor (Former Employee)
Stanford, CA (US)

I worked at Stanford University full-time for less than a year

ProsYou get to meet many leaders in many disciplines. Any position at Stanford can easily be used to establish contacts in a desired field.

ConsThe administration is growing without any active discernment, and it wastes a lot of money. Look out for people who get their foot in and then try to bring in nepotistic connections for positions.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
