    I worked at Stanford Health Care full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The best place I have ever worked. Charting system is the best!!! Everything works flows in every department. From units, to pharm, to housekeeping . Great place to work. Pay and benefits are great. Stanford is a professional environment. Great residency program!!

    Cons

    Parking is a con. But this is true of most hospitals.

    Advice to Management

    Hire less travelers and more core staff. Help staff feel valuable with the transition into the new hospital. Listen to your staff about safety and staffing based on the acuity , sometimes the help really is needed. Also with the budget cuts do not let the stuff your nurses need be taken away.
