Solid, balanced place.

Life Science Research Assistant (Current Employee) Palo Alto, CA (US)

ProsTop University, great weather year round, diverse crowd. Good pay and great benefits.
Stanford takes good care of it's employees, lots of free courses and possibilities for advancement.
Located in the middle of high tech hub, provides good contact with companies around.

ConsThe place is huge, one can get lost there easily if you don't have clear priority. Lots of management type people with snobby attitude, oh and reach students of course. The salary could be better, espesially taking into account how expensive living in this area is.

Advice to Senior ManagementProvide more opportunities for employees to mingle and learn what each other is doing. Try to match salary to companies in the area, otherwise people will be always looking for greener grass.

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