    Pros

    Good people
    Interesting projects
    Just began a remote work policy
    Nice to be supporting health care at a prestigious institution

    Cons

    Undergoing management change with an interim CIO
    Uncertainty about future
    Titles likely to be adjusted down
    Can't help feeling that when looking for positions at technology companies, they look down on IT experience at Stanford Health Care

    Advice to Management

    One of the main selling points for an IT worker at Stanford Health Care is stability. If that goes away due to reductions in force, title changes, and leadership changes, Stanford Health Care will lose its IT people that have other options.

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

    Pros

    CCSB is a beautiful facility. Good pay, benefits. Physicians are awesome to work with. SHC is well known.

    Cons

    Poor management. No room to grow. Small 'break' area. No bathrooms for staff. SHC is very narrow minded when it comes to job specifics. 'It's not my job' attitude. SHC wants you to dedicate your life to them, no work home life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Care more about dedicated staff. Less favoritism. Practice CI-CARE, not just enforce it on staff. R.N. need to show more respect to all other staff regardless of title.

    Pros

    It's a great learning environment. The providers are friendly. The pay is good for the Bay Area. They pay for most of your transportation.

    Cons

    Management hires people that are immature and have little to no experience. Managers will promote employees that are unqualified for a position. There is a lot of favoritism and if you're not one of the favorites you are reprimanded for everyone's mistakes. If you bring concerts to management they will do nothing about it.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people with experience and that know how to be polite to patients and each other. Make sure friends/family/significant other don't work in the same departments. Hire managers that care about their employees well being and know how to approach there employees.
