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

    Pros

    -Good benefits
    -Clinic hours 8-5, M-F

    Cons

    -Overworked staff due to "hiring freeze"
    - Change is slow. New ideas take a lot of time to implement and approval has to go through many levels of management.
    -Stressful environment

    Advice to Management

    Restructure clerical staff model. CAII and OAIV are not optimal for satellite clinics.

    Pros

    Large organization with the resources in place and opportunities to develop

    Decent work-life balance for accounting / finance
    Solid benefits

    Friendly colleagues and tight-knit group

    Cons

    Lower than market compensation

    Understaffed, partially due to the convoluted and slow processing time by HR, also bare bone budgets which restricts ability to bring on staff

    Overall a great place for those looking for career stability, but not for the place to stay long term due to legacy organization (everything is bureaucratic)

    No perks or any offerings in the kitchen

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

    Pros

    The mission of Packard cannot be argued with. Amazing outcomes for the most medically fragile population.

    Cons

    Serious lack of respect for staff, no communication about job status, and very little room for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach; PCARES should also apply to staff. Its disheartening to work in an amazing hospital only to see how staff are treated. Poor management isn't addressed, rude staff are just allowed to do whatever they want.
