Eh, I've had better

Resident (Former Employee)
Palo Alto, CA

Pros-Good benefits: medical/dental/vision, use of gym, free Caltrain GoPass and VTA Ecopass, Marguerite shuttle, etc.
-Other residents are generally nice.
-Radiology dept is excellent, and happy to teach/show/discuss. Amazing since they area abused with so many unnecessary scans ordered.

Cons-A lot of wasted resources (but that is the health care system, so you'll get that most places).
-ER is clinically poor.
-Defensive medicine galore. Wasted resources.
-Nursing is overpaid and Stanford cultivates a culture of empowerment for them. Many nice outwardly, but passive/aggressive, and will go way above your head if any issue. Must walk on eggshells around. Difficult to do 24-7-365. This is magnified 100x in the children's hospital.
-Negativity b/w specialties.
-Not enough food money. Uh, we work 80hrs a week and don't make any money since we're residents. Think you could spot us some food money? Most hospitals do.
-Pay too low compared to cost of living in Silicon Valley. Often scraping by.

Advice to Senior ManagementSee above regarding nursing, food, and pay. As for the other cons, that is mostly the healthcare system, or things mgmt can't do anything about.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
