Pros

Great benefits, lots of vacation time, extra perks like tri-met, etc, pretty nice people to work with, HR tries to find good balance between organization economics and staff needs, good recognition of work/life balance. great accessible downtown location.

Cons

management can be a little touchy feely sometimes, you may be forced to play cheesy games, etc. Still, a good overall experience with more pros than cons.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

good job keeping employees informed of major events and trends, please keep offering benefits; even though not everyone appreciates them, most staff do.

    Pros

    CareOregon is truly a mission driving organization that cares about both its employees and its members.
    The benefits are great.
    The people are very nice.

    Cons

    As it's a smaller organization, the higher you are in "rank" the less opportunity there is for advancement.
    There are quite a few politics for a small organization.
    You REALLY need to be prepared to take on multiple roles as they under hire in order to make sure they don't need to lay people off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look closer at where you are utilizing your staff. It doesn't make sense to pay a senior employee to spend 50% of their time on very basic admin tasks and not have enough time to spend really working their position. "Under utilized" would be a good term.

    I have been working at Careoregon full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits. The company pays competitive wages, contributes to 401(k), and has a reasonable health plan.

    Cons

    Culture, work-life balance, professionalism. The company's like a boat without a rudder since a big change in the industry a few years ago, and management at ALL levels is poorly suited to deal with it. Shockingly bad leadership, and a weird place where you'll hear anybody can speak up, but it's a rigid, top-down, quasi-governmental organization lost in its own mythology.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reinvent the culture. Hire change agents. Empower and trust professional employees more, and treat them well. Hold managers accountable.
