The Health Care & University Environment Were Empowering
Call Center Supervisor (Former Employee) – Stanford Uinversity, Palo Alto, Ca. – May 2, 2014
The first day I stepped on to the grounds of Stanford University I felt extremely blessed and just knew I was poised to be more than I was prior to becoming an employee. The senior leadership promoted individual contributions, and invested in my growth from an Emotional Intelligence perspective, constantly grooming me to become a visionary and a leader. I also loved the attention to spirituality and meditation.
My immediate manager did not hold the same values as the senior leadership; under that leadership my confidence was constantly tested and my decisions were undermined. That person was the hardest part of working for Stanford. I truly feel that without that person's presence stifling my growth, I would have reached a higher level of visibility at the University based on my likability, creativity, and strong ability to build meaningful relationships.
I thoroughly enjoyed the Stanford Technical Leadership Program I successfully completed, and had begun applying all of what I had learned to personal time management, and in the coaching and developing of the union staff that reported to me. There was so much opportunity for growth until I was rarely bored.
It is because of Stanford University that I am thriving in this new post employment venture I embarked up in social networking and radio. I will be forever grateful for all I learned, and my time spent there.
relationships, investment in development, encouraged individuality, valued the theme of a balanced life, great pay
immediate management auditing, immediate management separating themselves from obligatory responsiblities to devlope managers
Registrar/Insurance Verifier (Former Employee) – Pleasanton, CA – November 23, 2015
I LOVE working with the public and helping people. I really fit into this position and it has been a big benefit for me just for those reasons. However, when big corporations take over and do not take care of there employees it can be draining. Made many, many friends here and really enjoyed my job as a Registrar.
Events Coordinator/Audio & Video Technician (Current Employee) – Stanford, CA – November 12, 2015
I enjoy working for Stanford University and with my team! Everyone is professional, yet down to earth, and seems to have a good balance with their career and home life. My manager and team is awesome, and they take the time to educate one another. The culture is upbeat and positive. If you'd like to become a permanent employee, consider applying to Stanford University directly, rather than through Stanford Temps.
Clean campus, shuttle to transit, social gatherings on campus, creating a warm and friendly work environment
Prefers to hire through Stanford Temps, which makes it difficult to qualify for medical benefits.
Administrative Director (Former Employee) – Palo Alto, CA – November 9, 2015
I worked in a contract position in this "temporary, half-time" position during the start-up phase of its funded development. I loved the personal and public relationships. A typical day was "whatever was needed."
My "co-workers" (because I believe in active teamwork) were other contractors and graduate and undergraduate student assistants. I determined needs for temporary personnel, trained, and managed as needs required.
The hardest part of the job was simply working much longer than "half-time" because of personal satisfaction with the work and because there was so much to do. There weren't enough hours in the day!
The most enjoyable part was delivering the message of the Lane Center, which was about the need of deeper study of the geographic, economic, and cultural development of the North American West. My role involved preparing and hosting seminars and public presentations about the Center, as well as advising students about the interdepartmental major in the field.
Learning new material and communicating with people
Funding. There was never enough to really soar as an organization within a bigger organization.
Primary Care Associate Program (PCAP) (Former Employee) – Palo Alto, CA – November 7, 2015
Great experience and learning environment. Productive and welcoming. Spent time as a student in the PCAP program, and a typical day consisted of technical skills, and lectures from outstanding speakers from all walks of life. Very encouraging and overall a great experience.
Researcher and Student (Current Employee) – Stanford, CA – October 26, 2015
I've spent a year at Stanford as a student and a researcher.It's a beautiful place with a lot of facilities.The good point about that is the high level of students and professors and the hard point is the quarter-based system, which puts more pressure on students, such that they have less time to do research and look for jobs.
Finance Management Analyst (Current Employee) – Palo Alto, CA – October 9, 2015
Professional organization that offers good work life balance and decent benefits package. A lot of opportunities for professional development, how ever too many levels of management, and to many obstacles for growth within organization. Does not promote internal talent. The interview process is very extensive, long (can take 3 month to a year) and very ineffective in terms of employee retention.
Housekeeping Aide (Current Employee) – Palo Alto, CA – October 5, 2015
I enjoy my work environment and the individuals I work with. I enjoy helping the staff and making sure the patient are in a clean environment and the staff are properly equipped with the tool and supplies that they need.
