Ok place to work
Security Officer (Full-time) (Current Employee) –  Palo Alto, CAJuly 2, 2018
Working at Stanford helped me understand the customer service side of security and my first experience of Psychiatric care at US Hospitals. Due to staff shortages and inefficient use of resources it was often hard to get breaks which is especially important in the stationary posts. Often hard even to get a bathroom break which was sometimes uncomfortable. Stanford is a busy hospital which claims that customer service is paramount but money seems to be the most important thing and now that I work at a county hospital I can see the difference and appreciate the county hospital much more. I did not enjoy processing deceased patients into and out of the hospital morgue but did enjoy getting to know some of the staff and visitors and helping them when I could.
Pros
N/a
Cons
Hard to get breaks and managers give you a hard time if you bring this to their attention

The hospital use to be the most prestigious hospital in the world
HMO Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Palo Alto, CAMay 30, 2018
Stanford hospital was once the most prestigious hospitals in the world until they stated hiring unskillful worker because they could speak a certain language or had a different last name, the hospital does look like a equal playing field anymore, The compensation and benefits are great. there's room for job security and advances, Management is not that great the company is to top heavy. Too many bosses walking around doing nothing while the administrative staff and the little people do all of the work. overall the hospital is better than okay place to work,
Pros
Descent pay
Cons
Need less management

Pros

An Intern's Perspective
Summer College Student Worker (Former Employee) –  Palo Alto, CAMay 8, 2018
I worked with multiple teams where the work culture was extremely helpful and friendly. I found that the departments I worked with were always doing their best to help out one another and people kept networking and trying to be everyone's friends. The positive vibe from there makes me want to return there in the future as I develop as a more professional employee.
Pros
Positive and Caring Work Culture

HOSPITAL TECHNICIAN (Current Employee) –  Redwood City, CAMay 1, 2018
The new outpatient center in Redwood city is beautiful. The pay is competitive and the employee benefits are great. If applying outside of Stanford it's hard to get in as they hire current employees over hiring outside.

Work hard under excess power management
Sterile Processing Tech II (Former Employee) –  Palo Alto, CAApril 29, 2018
Most likely at Stanford Sterile Processing Department , all employees have to work very hard. If you said “ work productively because Stanford hospital provided employees with some basic “ fun work place...I don’t see it through past 13 years working here.
Peoples need a paycheck to cover their lives therefore they have to work under “ excess power management “.
Pros
NO Free lunch./ One a year with very cheap free sandwiches in holiday.
Cons
Of course they have 2 short break 15 minutes/ 30 minutes lunch

I learned that no matter how good of employee you are you can't take your job for granted. The management lacked certain things when it came to certain employees.
