Lead Preschool Teacher (Current Employee) – Stanford, CA – July 30, 2018
Working for Stanford is a great opportunity I wish everyone could get a chance to be a part of. The environment is inspiring and the people I am surrounded by are some of the most educationally advanced in their fields. The only thing I found to be frustrating at times was the culture of the silicon valley which tends to be very work- focused and not so much life balance focused.
Full benefit coverage, caring management, strong relationships
commute traffic with little commuter benefits/ no public transportation benefits, no company perks
Tech Operations (Current Employee) – Palo Alto, CA – July 19, 2018
During my time, I would run various positions trying to learn all that I can. The producers were on top of everything going on and would continue to set the expectation high of what was to be done. This would be both a positive and a negative. Negatively only if you are new to the position in which case, you need to learn quick in order to stay in the loop.
Graduate Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Santa Clara County, CA – July 18, 2018
While the culture at Stanford is highly competitive and can tend towards entitlement (especially among the undergraduates), the opportunities afforded by Stanford to reach beyond your immediate field and build interdisciplinary networks is unrivaled.
Contribution to research and teaching that makes a difference
Business Manager/Senior Financial Manager (Current Employee) – Stanford, CA – July 16, 2018
Stanford University and SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory are amazing environments and I know I contribute to research and teaching that solve world problems. The other staff are intelligent, friendly and work well on teams.
Administrative Associate II (Current Employee) – Redwood City, CA – July 13, 2018
Fun and supportive place to work. Not efficient with growth opportunities, depending on the department. Positive environment for longevity. Some policies and procedures are confusing as they seem to be open for interpretation. Loved my colleagues.
Group activites, Employee appreciation events, friendly staff, health coverage/benefits
Clinical Nurse II (Current Employee) – Palo Alto, CA – June 25, 2018
Good benefits and ability to move around within the organization. The problem is that the hospital is trying to do more with less and has cut their staffing in all units leading to unsafe working situations at times. Overall a good place to work if you can afford the cost of living in the bay area.
Academic Admin Associate III (Current Employee) – Palo Alto, CA – June 14, 2018
Stanford is a wonderful company to work for. It is a huge organization with great benefits and perks. The commute is rough if you live in the North side, but the people and environment are awesome! Lots of resources for growth.
Clinical Research Project Manager (Former Employee) – Stanford, CA – June 11, 2018
The best at Stanford is the ability to work and meet amazing people. The worst is the politics that can decrease the efficiency of potential growth. I really enjoyed being able to take classes and working with people that taught me new things.
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Stanford, Ca – June 10, 2018
Working at Stanford allowed for growth as well as family time. They strive to allow their employees a balance of family and employment which I think is unique in the Bay Area. Friendships and collaboration are vital parts to the University's vision.
