Best thing: Tuition Grant Program, BeWell perks, 401k, great health benefits, and a ton of additional discounts and perks Worst: dental insurance - a lot of places are no longer accepting the dental insurance as in network

Great coverage, especially for anyone with a chronic illness or needing an expensive treatment. The worst is Cardinal Care/HealthNet only covers Stanford affiliated clinics, hospitals, etc.

Registered Nurse

I was just offered an RN II position at Stanford Hospital’s B3 unit for $84/hour. Are there any RNs out there who can tell me what it’s like working on the unit and if it’s worth leaving my job for? I love my current job, my schedule and the people. I have no problems with it except that it’s 1.5 hours away from my family and it pays $25/hour less than Stanford. Also, do you think it’s too late to ask if I can visit the unit before I make my decision? Thanks in advance.

So many perks to this job called Stanford Sweetners.

No retirement options for stipend-paid postdocs, and no matching for any postdocs. Health insurance is free for postdocs without dependents but pretty expensive to cover family members (and getting worse). Stipend-paid postdocs don’t get paid parental leave.

The healthcare is relatively high quality but very geographically constrained––it is more or less obligatory to get all specialized medical care from Stanford providers.
