    I have been working at OHSU full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Because OHSU is so large, those in the research departments get a lot of infrastructure support. There is support with contract negotiations, grant setup and closing, and IRB applications are pretty smooth. Benefits are also very good. Very generous vacation and sick time, and the health insurance is more than adequate for a 20-something.

    Cons

    Research jobs vary drastically since researchers get a lot of independence with their labs. Because of this, there may be a good deal of disconnect (with researcher staff in the same department not knowing what other labs are doing).

    I have been working at OHSU full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    OHSU offers great benefits and a has a healthy respect for work-life ratio. It makes working at OHSU a pleasant experience.

    Cons

    The organization is risk averse and is slow to change. Projects are rarely completed on schedule, or on budget. The workplace leans extremely left politically, which can make for some uncomfortable hallway discussions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to ditch the unions. They do nothing to further the organization's mission and often distract employees from contributing 100% to OHSU's success.
