    Pros

    The facility is well known and kept clean. The staff is friendly and professional. The environment is nice and calm.

    Cons

    I can't really think of any down side of working at Stanford health care. I don't think anyone would turn down an offer from Stanford.

    Advice to Management

    The dynamics of interdisciplinary team are collaborative and flowing. All members have a say instead of dictated by physicians.

    Pros

    Wonderful reputation! Great teaching school allows employees to learn a lot about the departments in which they work. Doctors and staff are eager to explain things to lower staff.

    Cons

    Cost of living makes it difficult to live nearby. (Some) Management need to take classes on how to be good managers/supervisors.

    Advice to Management

    Train Managers!

    Pros

    It's a very collaborative environment. C-I-CARE works wonders for patient satisfaction.

    Cons

    For a company with so much emphasis on lean practices and continuous process improvement there is quite a lot of waste that have not surfaced yet.
