Reviews

Food Service Worker in Palo Alto, CA
on November 16, 2020
Stanford dining hall is a lot of hard work but very fun if you love your co workers
Overall, I had a great expirence working at Stanford. I would recommend the Stanford dining hall job to any one is highschool or college that is a hard worker. Management actually cares about your schedule and will keep you on a consistent schedule. There are different rolls to fulfill at the dining hall.
Postdoctoral Fellow in Palo Alto, CA
on November 7, 2020
Lots of flexibility
Great for your CV, get to meet great people. Many oportunities for new projects and lots of flexibility in the selecting projects. You need a lot of self motivation to make the best of your time here, but a huge potential for self growth. Multicultural environment with whatbeems like 50% of Europeans (especially Italians and Germans). Work environment is a bit suffocating and uptight. Most people are talking themselves up. People are work and fitness obsessed which is both good and bad.

Minimal supervision and stress free
They let us work on our own way, flexible and reliable. Love working there and scope for internal moves. Overall awesome place to work. Casual dress and lots of perks.
Postdoc in Stanford, CA
on October 3, 2020
A prestigious place to work
Worked as a postdoc there for 4 years. In terms of school or department, the organization is good and support is great. But if you are going to work in a lab, you also need to make sure you and the research and the PI are mutual fits. However, there are many places you can seek help.
