    I worked at Stanford Health Care

    Pros

    Front line staff work hard

    Cons

    Horrible horrible upper management at the executive director level and some managers that are apart the “ chosen ones”. Executive Director was the worst leader I have ever worked with, he allows the chosen ones to run the show, no ethics in that department, toxic working environment. Do apply to this department over 24 people under his direction left in less than a year. Managers are cut throat, no team work,... promotions are handed out like candy to undeserving friends of the director. Horrible admin assistant she’s had several complaints against her yet she gets a promotion. Shady unprofessional environment.

    Pros

    Great salary and great benefits

    Cons

    Management is like a rotating door here and it's no wonder. No support is given to management from upper management and they pit managers against one another. Policies are pretty terrible and the doctors are never held responsible for bad behavior.

    Advice to Management

    Back your management when issues arise. Don't make them constantly feel like they're on trial.

    I worked at Stanford Health Care part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good benefits but gradually cutting more and adding cost to the employees. Many dedicated people work here.

    Cons

    Upper management so focused on $$ that patient care and employee satisfaction and retention are neglected.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to employees other than managers and supervisors to get information on how to improve your services.

    I have been working at Stanford Health Care full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Many interesting clinical cases you can learn from. I can't speak for other lab teams, but our group has great teamwork.

    Cons

    Highly stressful workplace with poor compensation and benefits compared to other institutions. Clinical lab scientists are treated like work horses and the Clin Lab upper management is not interested in advocating or providing support to lab employees. No one in upper management had any experience working at Stanford Clinical Lab as a CLS, therefore they do not have much knowledge of what happens in the lab. They... have not taken the time to learn and understand it either. Their interest lies in promoting themselves and keeping their jobs. There is not much intellectual or career advancement for CLS. The lab employees are hardly appreciated and respected by Hospital management and the rest of the clinical departments.

    Advice to Management

    The laboratory management (VP, directors, managers and supervisors) needs to show a sincere interest in advocating for the lab employees instead of constantly engaging themselves in political games to advance their careers or protect their positions. Upper management needs to start hiring staff with exceptional knowledge and skills for management positions, instead of making hiring decisions based on favoritism and... politics. The employees are frustrated that this "renowned" institution is led by many self-serving individuals with abysmal clinical and technical knowledge.

    Pros

    High paying (as is all of the Bay Area), prestigious

    Cons

    The way that they treat there nurses has changed dramatically. Too much upper management, the floor nurses never feel like their concerns are being heard.
