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.
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.
