    Pros

    Working towards a common goal while meeting some awesome people.

    Cons

    MGMT's ability to remove the only leadership that WAS working and the ability to hire managers that are more concerned with egos and titles than doing the actual work. Putting people in power positions that are so far removed from patient care and honestly, have no business being in healthcare. They would rather work for Google or FB. They will destroy the organization from the inside out. It's has already begun

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue. Quit thinking of yourself and get a bigger perspective. Reward the talent you have. Quit hiring new people that just convolute the issue. Fix the issue.

    I have been working at Stanford Health Care full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great location, but too expensive. Great work-life balance.

    Cons

    Overrun by managers who are overpaid but not exactly qualified. Patient-oriented on the surface, but profit-oriented at the core as a matter of fact.

    Advice to Management

    Think about why you are having difficulty recruiting full-time physicians (not trainees) and why many are leaving. It's not rocket science.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    salary ok for residency; not much higher than other programs but a little higher good opportunities for research and collaboration across campus senior doctors enthusiastic about teaching resident insurance was terrible but recently has improved

    Cons

    overall stressful environment employees often seem very unhappy; no great team structure dental insurance has low maximum payment for the year

    Advice to Management

    I have patients at other hospitals who tell me they prefer to work there because they feel that at Stanford, physicians and health staff are too stressed. I think focusing more on team building between different health care providers would be great. Simple things also go a long way in residency.

    I have been working at Stanford Health Care full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Tremendous amount of top notch employees in a variety of disciplines that are passionate about their job and the quality of their work.

    Cons

    As great as it is to work with highly skilled individuals, the culture is that of individuals and not teams. SHC is a highly political culture that sometimes feels as though people are more about blocking the initiatives and goals of others rather than helping the organization achieve global success. You really have to maintain a "head on a swivel" approach in order to manage your team, yourself, and the potential road blocks that are created for no tangible reason.

    Prestigious hospital with years of knowledge and experience from which one can learn. Great benefits and decent salary. Several great locations for lunch on and nearby off campus.

    Pros

    Competitive work environment and like minded individuals

    Cons

    Over reaching leadership concepts with little to no room of creativity or innovation. Meetings about meetings and extremely political environment.

    Advice to Management

    Lean six sigma: reduce wasted time in pointless meetings and put theory into action.
