Associate Director, OPA and SoM (Former Employee) – Stanford, CA – March 16, 2018
Stanford is a wonderful institution to work for, there are amazing and many opportunities; great people and wonderful culture, encourage innovation. The work culture encourages trying something vs. not doing anything at all. It is very collaborative and diverse.

Working at Stanford University is one the most fulfilling opportunities I've had. It is a pleasure to work there. You will encounter many different types of people from all walks of life. The desire to learn more and better yourself is contagious.

anonymous (Current Employee) – Palo Alto, CA – March 1, 2018
All the folks I work with here at Stanford have simply been extraordinary, Personal experience differs greatly however, depending on which department you work for.
Outstanding benefits, fair compensation, healthy work environment is definitely stressed, with a full gym, as well as multiple fitness class options to choose from. Free Cal-train passes encourage environmental awareness and lighten the parking issue, which can be a source of aggravation.
Outstanding benefits, fair compensation, opportunity to advance
Area Coordinator (Former Employee) – Stanford, CA – February 28, 2018
Though there was a lack of collaborative approach in many areas it also meant that you were given latitude and creativity in anything you oversaw. They are willing to take risks and when you have the access to do so it can make the work very exciting.
Research Administrator (Former Employee) – Stanford, CA – February 20, 2018
There is a lot of room for growth! I really enjoyed the department I worked for, it was well managed and everyone was friendly. The culture is relaxed, a quiet work environment and people were willing to help in whatever ways they could.
Maintenance (Current Employee) – California – February 15, 2018
Management really mistreats workers.What used to be a beautiful place to work in,has turned into more like a prison.In fact,many of us refer to the new head honcho,as "the warden."It has become very difficult to even get a vacation approved for more than 2 week duration.And we're no longer allowed to take vacation at Christmas time.As well as several other times of year being blacked out.Employees have been fired for being injured.They even tried to fire a worker who got cancer,and had to do chemo.One worker hurt his back,and while out on injury,his insurance was dropped by human resources.And when he went to HR to inquire within what happened,he was snapped at by the head lady that he needed to be patient.it took him several weeks to get that reinstated.With very little help from HR.Very unfriendly,and unprofessional management,upper-management,and micro management.New rules and regulations daily now.Nightmare job.
Good weather.nice neighborhood.
Prison atmosphere.low wages compared to cost of living.
