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

    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.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Stanford Health Care full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    - Benefits - Caltrain/VTA pass - More Social Workers should use this website to post salaries and reviews so there is more transparency and more advancement

    Cons

    - Low morale in the Social Work department - No transparency, from salary ranges to open positions, mistrust between management and Social Workers - Favoritism in hiring and promotions - Salary varies widely - No emphasis on experience or longevity so that they can hire brand new Social Work grads to pay them low, with little to no orientation, training and support (bad way to start off a career) - High turnover with Social Workers - Managers only interested in the bottom line - Little job security (fear of retaliation) - Lack of support from management - Lack of humanity by management towards current employees, little work/life balance - No union so no protections of salary or basic advancements through career - Hospital under construction so lot's of hassle getting to/from work, expensive parking

    Advice to Management

    Treat others how you would want to be treated.
