    I have been working at Stanford Health Care full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Like any large organization, you will find a wide variety of employees. However, in general I find it to have one of the nicest employee populations I've worked with. You are also part of a mission to save lives. Can't get much more inspiring than that!

    Cons

    Some of the administrative processes are very outdated. Need to invest some time and money to fix. Organization is so space strapped, there are employees at so many locations. This makes it harder to feel unified.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to bring the inspiring mission closer to employee hearts & minds.

    Pros

    They help patients and have a CI Care program. The pay is semi-descent and they have good computer systems.

    Cons

    It’s a dog-eat-dog culture. Management encourages others on your team to offer you up.. They’re ruthless and harsh in the dealings with you. The worst job I’ve ever had.
    Unless you’re a doctor or nurse, don’t work here.
    Horrible experience. Thank God it was only over one year. Seriously beware.

    Advice to Management

    Do a better job with your team.
