    I have been working at Stanford Health Care full-time

    Pros

    Excellent teamwork and quality of care at Stanford across all of the nursing staff and secretaries. People here care about their job and doing it well. Management on my unit is equally wonderful

    Cons

    I hate where it's located. Palo Alto is expensive as all hell and soulless. Stanford is an amazing campus and the hospital is an awesome extension of it but it's in the middle of the most boring part of the Bay. Living anywhere cooler is gonna put you at an hour commute.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up what you are doing, I love 90% of the managers I encounter across the hospital. Listen to staff, be present on the floor, get floor time experience and provide relevant and engaging meetings/ staff education.
