    Graphic Artist for marketing department

    Graphic Artist (Current Employee) Eugene, OR

    ProsWorking on campus as a student was a great experience due to the ease of scheduling. I could always schedule my hours to work around my classes which took away a lot of stress. I also feel privileged to have a job as as graphic artist while in school.

    ConsSometimes the load of school work became rather heavy which made the balance of work and school a bit more stressful.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe marketing group is what makes your business look good, yet often times we wished we could do projects that required funds we didn't have.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Faculty instructor for Education Technologies

    Library Student Assistant (Former Employee) Eugene, OR

    ProsWorking in the education field is amazing. The focus of the job is to improve minds, and that is very satisfying. Univ. of Oregon is set on a campus that feels like a forest, with a thousand trees encircled by the Willamette river.

    ConsCompensation is average, all thing being equal. The parking near campus is dreadful. Having to ride a bike keeps you in shape, that may be negative for some folks.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
