Health Information Assistant II, Stanford (Current Employee) – Palo Alto, CA – August 23, 2018
I love my job and working here, it is an awesome place to work :-) The cost of living is just so high here, until I need more money to keep a float with day to day expenses and living here in the Bay Area. But have no plans on moving out :-)
It's a grind, but worth having a "name" company on your resume
ANESTHESIA TECHNICIAN (Current Employee) – Palo Alto, CA – August 2, 2018
Management is grossly out of touch with employees and will focus on themselves above all others. Decisions both large and small are made through collaborative meetings often resulting in over-thought and under-performing results. Employee moral is abysmal.
Sr. Accountant (Former Employee) – Menlo Park, CA – June 20, 2018
I worked as a consultant and everyone was nice. Kinda cool vibe there and yet everyone had to work very hard at every month end. I'm sure this applies to every company out there but in terms of cooperation and sharing-knowledge was such a breeze.
Productive, professional, fast paced, collaborative, training opportunities, opportunities to work with the most complex cases
Clinician (Current Employee) – Palo Alto, CA – June 4, 2018
Productive and professional place to work. It is a fast paced collaborative environment and the training is outstanding. It provides opportunities to work with the most complex cases and rare medical conditions.
Professional, cutting edge medical advances/opportunities, opportunities for growth and innovation
Pharmacy Technician (Current Employee) – Palo Alto, CA – June 3, 2018
The amount of favoritism here is insane. There are a handful of people that can take vacation multiple times a year while the rest of us will get 1-2 days requests denied.
Management will ask us to contribute ways to improve but slap down all of our ideas without even trying them out.
It's a rotating schedule. They tell you that there are opportunities for set shifts, but don't be fooled because those shifts are already taken and you'd have to wait a long time for them to free up and even then it's highly competitive.
The managers are out of touch. It's true that they used to be staff technicians and pharmacists, but they've been so far removed that they no longer understand what it's like to be a regular staff member.
So disorganized. not only in the daily work flow but in career advancement.
Medical Assistant back and front office (Current Employee) – Palo Alto, CA – March 27, 2018
I work here I like the people, doctors. A lot of the doctors like to teach you new things. I'm a float so knowing/remembering what each doctor likes can be complicated but most doctors do not have an issue with you asking questions/giving reminders. Some things I enjoy about LPCH
-Good hourly wage considering what other clinics want to offer. - Great EPIC classroom training offered at Stanford Hospital. -Fast-paced, lots of information thrown at you all at once. -Excellent C-I-CARE protocol and reinforcement. -Daily schedule could change at any time/location. -Plenty of resources available if you chose to use them.
Care Coordination Liaison (Current Employee) – Palo Alto, CA – March 22, 2018
My first year with LPCH was wonderful and allowed our team freedom to create our role, work within a multidisciplinary environment, and provide exceptional care for our patients and families. During the second year politics kicked in, as did budgeting concerns for our new hospital. We became micromanaged, but this was unique to our department. Overall I believe the hospital was working the best it could to prepare for the opening of Packard 2.0 and we still provided our families with exceptional care. As an organization I felt well supported by the other teams and departments.
Free public transit cards, Respectful work environment, Loving team
Transport to/from work (i.e. limited parking which you had to pay for), No free coffee
Productive and Fast Paced Environment, Great for Advancement
Care Coordination Liaison (Former Employee) – Palo Alto, CA – March 3, 2018
Lucile Packard is a phenomenal place to get started in your career. There are a wide variety of entry level jobs that can lead to other departments if you are interested. Everyone is super helpful and engaged in not only helping getting you to where you want to be, but they work together to make sure everything is done in a team environment. As for caring for patients and families, there is no greater feeling than doing so. You will have to work hard in any position at LPCH, but it's always worth it for the children.
Great benefits, career advancement, competitive pay
Hard to take breaks, large workload, fast paced environment
