Medical Assistant, (Former Employee) – Menlo Park, CA – March 21, 2019
Great place to work Management is not very fair and could improve a lot with employees and how they teach their employees. You have to use your PTO for what should be pay holidays. Their is no sick leave
HR (Former Employee) – Palo Alto, CA – March 8, 2019
Lots of great perks/benefits for all staff and the campus is a beautiful place to work. Not much opportunity for advancement, but that is highly dependent on which department you work in. Complex/cumbersome systems and very bureaucratic, making it hard to get new ideas pushed through quickly.
Postdoctoral Fellow (Former Employee) – Stanford, CA – March 7, 2019
I loved my job at Stanford but I left because the pay was not enough to cover childcare and the cost of loliving in the Bay Area. It’s sad that even with a Ph.D you are not paid a wage that can support a family.
Most money ever made but not enough to afford rent in Bay Area.
Lead Cook/Sous Chef (Current Employee) – Palo Alto, CA – February 24, 2019
Fun to feed young geniuses. Tuition assistance program. Week managers.
Great to work with fresh food in graduate business school. Quality of food purchased for undergraduate dining is far inferior. Also, no creativity in menu unless ingredients for planned menu items are missing.
2 classes a year in continuing studies. Take whatever interests you in the catalog
Management always unhappy and nervous. This rubs off on everyone else.
Academic l Advisor (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – February 17, 2019
For an online high school in the Silicon Valley I would assume that Stanford Online High School would be a bit more in touch with the times. Seems like there is a culture of doing things in the same way for no reason other then that’s the way that it’s been done in the past that seems to be lingering around.
Events Manager (Former Employee) – Stanford, CA – February 7, 2019
I started working at Stanford at a very young age and without a college degree. I worked there for a little under seven years and grew so much not only personally but also professionally. I learned things that you can't learn in school, dealt with all types of people/clients. I had access to an immense amount of resources. They pay could be better, they use their benefits package to make up for the lack of pay I should say. Not terrible pay however, the amount of work and hours put in deserves more compensation. That's why I sat it's a great stepping stone, you learn what you can and when another opportunity arises with better pay and a higher position you take it. I'd recommend Stanford anytime.
Critical Care Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Stanford, CA – February 4, 2019
The employees care about each other and provide excellent patient care. Maintaining good health at Stanford as a whole matters and they achieve this through teamwork and creating a positive work environment.
Digital Media Specialist (Former Employee) – Stanford, CA – February 1, 2019
Nice scenery and supportive co-workers, but you're there just to fulfill the task your hired for, so don't see any extra effort as a source of advancement. Management is not transparent, so low morale.
Postdoctoral Fellow (Former Employee) – School of Medicine – January 30, 2019
I loved my experience as a post doc. The supervisors are very knowledgable and it was a good experience of an academic hospital. There is a lot of autonomy and you get to choose who and what you want to work on.
Administrative Services (Current Employee) – Palo Alto, CA – January 28, 2019
