Systems/Network Analyst (Current Employee) – Palo Alto, CA – April 25, 2014
I was told that my manager doesn't give above a 3 out of 5 on job performance "because you work at Stanford, excellence is expected". Most days are like that, you do get to work on some good projects but most often mundane stuff.
The place is like a park, the buildings are beautiful but old so no AC and poor heating, this is only an issue a few days a year.
Raises are small blamed on the endowments slow growth.
I have stayed to long so I have been working on my skill set on my own.
Not to many places you get to work with Nobel Laureates if you are not a Laureate yourself expect to work hard and be beneath most of the faculty's consideration.
work with some of the smartest people on the planet.
Medical Records, Document Imaging, very busy enviroment
ROI Specialist I (Former Employee) – Redwood City, CA – June 20, 2016
receiving Faxes from doctors office and date stamping over 200 request a day. Sort the mail daily, deliver mail. receive doctor request via email would have to scan all document In a PDF format and send to Georgia. The job was a good learning experience. my co workers were nice we got alone well. The mail was a hardest part of the job because during holiday it would be a bundle and the mail had to be sorted and date stamped.
Their was never not a busy day.
so busy sometime you would forget to take a break.

Former employee (Former Employee) – Engineering – July 7, 2016
I would not recommend Stanford to anyone I know and care about. This is a horrible place to work, with HR in Engineering being the very worst. Do you work in Engineering period. Some of the department managers are the worst people I have ever encountered. Stay as far away from Engineering, especially the Deans Office, as possible.
Intellectually stimulating environment to work in. The campus itself is beautiful and accessible.
Visiting Scholar (Former Employee) – Palo Alto, CA – March 9, 2016
Stimulating and exciting educational environment. Great opportunities to contribute intellectually. An extremely gifted student population. This educational environment could benefit from increasing the diversity of the student population in some educational areas.The campus itself is a very attractive physical environment.
Could increase emphasis on diversifying student population.
Administrative Associate (Former Employee) – Stanford, CA – April 24, 2016
I can't recommend this University enough for potential job hunters. You can't beat their benefits and salaries when it comes to working in academia. The work culture was fantastic and truly loved being a part of the community.
