IT (huidige medewerker) – Stanford, CA – 27 augustus 2018
It's easy to get pigeon held here. They do not often promote from within and get too comfortable with where you are positioned. Seen too many people come here for several years not move up and instead move on. However, the work environment is very comfortable. Management will provide training and can be very supportive of that. Still do not expect to move anywhere as you can get all that training and watch the position you want be filled by an outside contractor.
The new CIO is great and is against these models but has to put Stanford through a culture change before that is possible.
In short do not consider this for long term unless you are coming in with a position you are happy to retire in. In that case once you join Stanford they will take care of you.
Good benefits, good working environment, training opportunities
Faculty Support Administrative Assistant (huidige medewerker) – Stanford, CA – 22 augustus 2018
Stanford does a very good job of taking care of its staff and faculty. One thing that they don’t have much control over is the cost of living in the area. It’s almost 2k for a room near Stanford, and you are looking at over an hour each way of commute for anything cheaper. Makes it really hard to stay here.
Networking, discounts, free train pass
Long commute, expensive housing, can’t work from home
The core characteristics of an institution in higher education must be considered when considering an employment opportunity in this industry.
Coordinator (huidige medewerker) – Stanford, CA – 14 augustus 2018
Experiences vary within this organization due to the sub-cultures that exist within each of the schools. Moving around the organization is desired by those who want to have access to new technology and gain new experiences. Employees have to own the process of managing their careers and seeking opportunities for development.
Benefits plans (outside of tuition assistance for those with children in college)
Limited resources, difficulty to implement change, multiple systems used inconsistently throughout the organization, schools/departments have varied access to technology, common to find duplicated efforts, lack of communication between internal groups and organizations
Student Mentor/Volunteer (huidige medewerker) – Palo Alto, CA – 10 augustus 2018
I am a volunteer, not a paid employee I do not work, I am a volunteer. Students from Stanford University call me or meet with me when I visit the campus and bring my daughter who is a student at Stanford.
Course Facilitator (huidige medewerker) – Remote – 1 augustus 2018
Working as part of the SI&E team has been one of the most rewarding job experiences I have ever had. It is flexible, prioritizes education, and allows for a lot of learning and growth while prioritizing development.
Lead Preschool Teacher (huidige medewerker) – Stanford, CA – 30 juli 2018
Working for Stanford is a great opportunity I wish everyone could get a chance to be a part of. The environment is inspiring and the people I am surrounded by are some of the most educationally advanced in their fields. The only thing I found to be frustrating at times was the culture of the silicon valley which tends to be very work- focused and not so much life balance focused.
Full benefit coverage, caring management, strong relationships
commute traffic with little commuter benefits/ no public transportation benefits, no company perks
Tech Operations (huidige medewerker) – Palo Alto, CA – 19 juli 2018
During my time, I would run various positions trying to learn all that I can. The producers were on top of everything going on and would continue to set the expectation high of what was to be done. This would be both a positive and a negative. Negatively only if you are new to the position in which case, you need to learn quick in order to stay in the loop.
