Median pay is highest in Menlo Park (approximately $130K per year), followed by San Jose ($120K), Sunnyvale ($88K), and San Francisco (around $74K). Approaching the lower end of the pay scale (at $48K) is Monterey.
Professors represent the higher end of the earnings spectrum — in fact, median pay for this job is the highest at about $122K — though Senior Financial Analysts, Non-Profit Organization Program Coordinators, and Administrative Associates also do fairly well at $109K, $62K, and about $57K, respectively. Financial compensation for Postdoctoral Research Associates is rather low — only around $46K — relative to the rest of the company.
Workers who have been with the company for more than one year but less than five can typically make $50K. Survey participants who have worked at Stanford University for between five and ten years haul in approximately $65K on average. Broken down by tenure, the largest number of Stanford University employees (30 percent) have 10-19 years of experience and typically earn $96K annually.
Physician Assistant-Certified s are compensated at a much higher rate than non-authorized workers, bringing in close to approximately $125K. Earning a Registered Nurse certification garners significant financial rewards of $121K per year. The best paid folks at Stanford University have a medical degree, earning about $165K annually.
The best paying skill to have in this role appears to be Project Management; employees who claim this ability report median compensation of around $104K. Data Analysis is regularly seen around here; nearly one in eight of those surveyed report it as a core competency. Some other standard skills here are Microsoft Office, Molecular Biology, and Clinical Research.
A lucky few (a third of workers) are fortunate enough to be compensated for both vacation and sick time. Employees can save for retirement by joining one of several savings plans such as a 401(k) plan and a 403(b) plan. At Stanford University, the greater part of workers have health insurance, and a strong majority of workers have dental coverage. Perks also include tuition reimbursement, a casual working environment, and gym membership.
