Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Stanford, CA – December 2, 2013
Large organization, somewhat unwieldy. The Department of Public Safety is a serious department that oversees the safety of the campus community. In the Records Department I reviewed officer cases and entered information into the department's database. Record-keeping is a fundamental part of the organization. All activities of this police department are public records and copies of cases were provided to the public with redacted confidential information. My co-workers were dedicated and hard-working. The hardest part of the job was doing 12 things at once well. The most enjoyable part of the job was participating in events on campus and being able to take classes.
Gorgeous campus, great staff
Required work on weekends, lots of politics to navigate.

Systems Software Developer (Current Employee) – Stanford, CA – July 20, 2017
Stanford has two benefits which can be a challenge to find in the Bay Area. First, is a good work-life balance. Although work hours can get long depending on where you work and what projects you are working on, untenably long hours is not the norm in my experience. Second, Stanford gives employees the ability to work alongside world class researchers teaching and training incredible students.
productive workplace with a diverse company culture
Administrative Associate (Current Employee) – Redwood City, CA – July 18, 2017
overall fun work environment but inept management drags the employees down and keeps them from performing to the greatest extent possible. talented workers are kept from advancing by archaic rules limiting their job duties.

Stanford is such a prestigious environment to work at. The majority of employees are very professional and driven. Management is top-notch. The most enjoyable part of the job are the brilliant colleagues in Stanford's BeWell organization.

Project & Finance Coordinator (Former Employee) – Stanford, CA – July 6, 2017
Stanford University offers some great benefits to their employees. They offer annual funds for employees to develop professionally, and also have a good tuition assistance program. However, the salaries are not high enough to live comfortably in the Bay Area at this time.
Financial Management Analyst (Former Employee) – Stanford, CA – July 4, 2017
Good place to work, they don't pay well for the positions and too many woman in the work place here with mental issues and control issues. Great work balance but int the school of medicine, you will work harder than any person on campus..
Administrative Associate (Former Employee) – Stanford, CA – June 23, 2017
Stanford overall is a great place to work because of good benefits, but you have to get in with the right group/team, otherwise you'll be miserable, as there are a lot of pretentious people working here. Seems as if they all were born with a bottle of grey poupon in one hand and a gold spoon in the other.
Summer intern at Stanford University (Former Employee) – Palo Alto, CA – June 17, 2017
This really was more of an internship that a job. the research was intriguing, the people were fun and motivating to work with, and I enjoyed the opportunity to learn the ropes of medical research during my time there.
Great work culture and easily accessible superiors.
At times a little dull, but for the most part very fulfilling
Cross-cultural curricula development (Former Employee) – Stanford, CA – June 14, 2017
Stanford University is highly ranked, due to its excellence in both education and student selection. The necessary intensity of study can be difficult, for those with families and other obligations. Overall, Stanford provides extremely well, for both its students and staff. Stellar opportunities for career support and growth, in all fields. Notably, as an instructor who has spent many years working with athletes, I was deeply impressed with the standards for education required of students engaged in all sports, on campus.
Stewardship Reporting Coordinator/Manager (Former Employee) – Stanford, CA – June 12, 2017
Not an easy place to work. I was given the title of "manager" but had nobody to manage, just a ton of work and not enough time to do it. I worked long hours and was very stressed out and ended up leaving.
IT Product Manager (Current Employee) – Stanford, CA – June 11, 2017
Stanford University is a great place to work. There are great benefits offered, there is a culture of people who like to help each other out, and the work/life balance is observed by almost everyone. There are long project life cycles and you learn quickly how to navigate the political environment.
Work/life balance, ability to learn new skills, investment in their workers
Long project lifecycle, need to navigate political culture
