Maintenance (Current Employee) – California – February 15, 2018
Management really mistreats workers.What used to be a beautiful place to work in,has turned into more like a prison.In fact,many of us refer to the new head honcho,as "the warden."It has become very difficult to even get a vacation approved for more than 2 week duration.And we're no longer allowed to take vacation at Christmas time.As well as several other times of year being blacked out.Employees have been fired for being injured.They even tried to fire a worker who got cancer,and had to do chemo.One worker hurt his back,and while out on injury,his insurance was dropped by human resources.And when he went to HR to inquire within what happened,he was snapped at by the head lady that he needed to be patient.it took him several weeks to get that reinstated.With very little help from HR.Very unfriendly,and unprofessional management,upper-management,and micro management.New rules and regulations daily now.Nightmare job.
Good weather.nice neighborhood.
Prison atmosphere.low wages compared to cost of living.

Lecturer Urdu (Former Employee) – Palo Alto, CA – February 4, 2018
Wonderful place to work in terms of faculty, level of students, facilities. Sorry to say that as a part timer, my compensation was very low. I was working in the language department, and when they resumed the language program after suspending for couple of years, they hired a native student to teach the class.
Great place to work, lot of prestige, wonderful students and teachers
Project Manager-OSP (Current Employee) – Stanford, CA – January 18, 2018
Work day included all phases of OSP work. Billing, contracts, repair, construction, relocation. Difficult to manage so many functions everyday. University shifting to academic roots. OSP work costly from time, material perspective. Hard to cut costs.
Rglar hours close to home.
Lots of uncertainty. No role organization. Limited over sight.
Life Science Research Professional (Current Employee) – Stanford, CA – January 13, 2018
I love working at Stanford however my job requires me to be in the lab every single day. It would be close to perfect if I had a day off. My only time off is when I actually take time off, which is hard to do in my lab.
Director of Operations, SCOPE (Current Employee) – Palo Alto, CA – January 6, 2018
Working for Stanford comes with many benefits, the most notable of which is the work-life balance afforded to most of its employees as well as the security that comes along with a higher education position.
