Overall, good place to work
Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Palo Alto, CAMay 22, 2018
SHC is a good place to work. It's a fast paced environment that requires everyone to problem solve and think logically. Work/Life balance can be challenging during intense periods but that is expected in health care.
Pros
Good pay and great 403B matching
Cons
Work/Life balance challenges

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

Clinical Medical Assistant (Former Employee) –  Santa Clara, CAApril 13, 2018
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.

Great place to work, not affordable to live.
Staff RN (Current Employee) –  Stanford, CAMarch 20, 2018
Stanford is a wonderful place to work. The cost of living is unbearable. You cannot afford to raise a family, buy a home or do much more there unless you come from money or buy a home with another couple and who wants to do that?
It's not Stanford's fault that greedy landlords don't decrease prices so regular people can live and work. Don't blame Stanford. Blame greedy landlords.
So you can work at Stanford and love it and commute from Tracey, Sacramento, Monterey or 2 hours in some other direction which kind of negates the whole experience/quality of life.
Pros
Union job
Cons
not affordable to live, raise a family or buy a home

Management not held accountable for poor morale or high turnover.
Clinic Nurse (Former Employee) –  Palo Alto, CAMarch 20, 2018
Inconsistency in expectations, evaluations, and workload for same roles in the same department and even more so in different departments.

I would only consider returning, if employed by University or with union representation.

Medical Assistant (Former Employee) –  Alameda, CAMarch 2, 2018
Lots of favoritism at Alameda location by management. Your life will be so much easier if you really get along with management. Love this location for the amazing doctors and staff that work there. You really need to know the importance of multitasking, lots of work load for one person. Great salary and you still manage to have a life outside of work. No part time at this location so you cannot go to school if you want to grow.
Pros
great learning experience
Cons
unable to accommodate their employees to go to school, large work load

Manager (Former Employee) –  Stanford, CAFebruary 28, 2018
Very negative workplace culture, especially towards persons of color. Everything seems great on the outside, but employees strategize on how to eliminate or force remove people - very stressful and unhealthy.

Field Service Technician II (Former Employee) –  Pleasanton, CAFebruary 27, 2018
Fast paced, live environment, never a dull moment, a lot to learn and a lot of knowledge to be shared. Learned many things. Each I.T. company is different and has their own way of running things. The other techs are helpful and try to make sure we can help each other when possible.
