    Advice to Management

    Be sensitive and engaged on maintaining valued employee retention. Employee attrition is a reflection of management. Instill strong work erhic and dedication by leading by example. Be a role model.

    Average Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Stanford Health Care.


    Overall the interview process itself was fine. Had two phone interviews before I did an all day in person interview with the team. However, after the final interview, I would have appreciated to find out either way whether I got the position (even after following up multiple times, I was never given an answer either way) and it took me nearly two months to get reimbursed for my travel expenses. Because of those two things, it soured my perception of the interview process and organization.
