Not what I expected at all!!
Administrative Assistant (voormalige medewerker) –  Palo Alto, CA15 augustus 2017
I thought this was going to be a fairly traditional EA type position, but I was in for a big, rude surprise!
This is the most bureaucratic, procedure-driven, complicated admin job I've ever had. Every little thing takes 5 times as long to complete compared to any other job I've had. The bulk of the job involved tons of expenses to process in different departments, and it was very complicated. There was video training and some by another admin, but it just takes a long time to get the hang of it because of all of the regulations, funds, codes, processes, etc. It took too many steps to do simple things. The people were very nice but overworked, so not a lot of hands-on help. I've worked in many different types of industries, so I've got a lot of admin experience.
I couldn't get out of there fast enough. Very stressful for me, not at all suited to my abilities.
Pluspunten
Nice people and outside grounds, good cafeterias
Minpunten
THE DUTIES!!

There is a sense of community at Stanford and i love that
Program Manager (voormalige medewerker) –  Palo Alto, CA15 augustus 2017
Stanford represents a state if the art learning environment with many resources and both students and staff feel lucky to be part if such an innovative and ever evolving type of environment. The University is a research institution and a training camp at the same time. It's always busy and exciting on campus because there's is so much happening and at time because of all the various competing multiple priorities it can get hard to keep up. Stressful time could be proposal preparation and submission time as everyone is focused and under tight deadlines. Tension eases off after the submission of proposal and some of the fun activities on campus pus are the cultural festivals every year and the entertainment and the music for the rest of the day. There are lots of events and conferences that go on on campus and tons of visitors coming to admires the many landmarks and must see exhibits around campus, in all it's a fun environment to work.
Pluspunten
There is always lots of food around
Minpunten
You must exercise self control as food seems to be everywhere

Elite place with very smart people. Work is fun if you enjoy applying the scientific process and thinking about things methodically. Don't be afraid to ask questions.

Incompetent, crazy, horrible people run the catering department.
Server (voormalige medewerker) –  Stanford, CA3 augustus 2017
Lots of screaming and yelling. Unrealistic expectations from overworked servers. Management took advantage of people because they needed the job. It's suppose to be a very great university but if you are a server or a cook or anyone else at bottom in the catering department, they treat you like garbage,you are nothing to them.
Pluspunten

Laboratory Manager (huidige medewerker) –  Palo Alto, CA1 augustus 2017
I'm a Lab manager at Stanford University

The job has it's up's and down's. The staff are friendly, but there is a constant political atmosphere, which makes the workplace culture a bit unpleasant. Compensation is also very low, but educational quality does make up for it.
Pluspunten
People are friendly
Minpunten
Very political atmosphere

Great Patient Care / Poor Management in CCTO
Research Nurse (huidige medewerker) –  Palo Alto, CA31 juli 2017
Stanford is really big on work-life balance; however, our current department does not support that. We have no support for vacation/time off coverage. Culture is cut-throat. Current manager supports back-stabbing behaviors, take credit for someone else's work, but when something goes wrong, blame others. Bullying and favoritism are supported here.
Pluspunten
Great employee wellness programs & incentives
Minpunten
Toxic culture; bulling; bad management

Great place to work if you want work life balance and to grow your skill set.
BUSINESS INTELLIGENCE ENGINEER (huidige medewerker) –  Stanford, CA27 juli 2017
Great place to work if you want work life balance and to grow your skill set. That said, it is academia, you won't be compensated nearly what is being paid in the market. Stanford offers a 403B retirement account, which is comparable to a 401k; Stanford matches up to a certain percentage. Good vacation benefits and, however health packages can get pricey fast if you have a family

Good work-life balance and access to incredible resources
Systems Software Developer (huidige medewerker) –  Stanford, CA20 juli 2017
Stanford has two benefits which can be a challenge to find in the Bay Area. First, is a good work-life balance. Although work hours can get long depending on where you work and what projects you are working on, untenably long hours is not the norm in my experience. Second, Stanford gives employees the ability to work alongside world class researchers teaching and training incredible students.

Project & Finance Coordinator (voormalige medewerker) –  Stanford, CA6 juli 2017
Stanford University offers some great benefits to their employees. They offer annual funds for employees to develop professionally, and also have a good tuition assistance program. However, the salaries are not high enough to live comfortably in the Bay Area at this time.
