    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.

    I have been working at Stanford Health Care full-time

    Pros

    Residency is a must do to do anything, it's a good place to position yourself for fellowship, and far better than other options - programs in other parts of the country are terrible when it comes to culture and hierarchy.

    Cons

    It's still residency, and it's still medicine. That means a lot of tradition, hierarchy, and slowness to change.

    Advice to Management

    Innovate. And quickly.

    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.

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