I have been working at OHSU

Pros

By far the best thing about working at OHSU is the city of Portland. The people at OSHU are very conscientious about their work and generally very helpful and friendly.

Cons

OHSU constantly struggles with financial concerns. It's tough to tell if that's from its pathetic upper management of the University or its paltry endowment. Either way the school seems to be perennially struggling to cut corners.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Catch a clue about long-term financial stability and stop trying to cure cancer in a week.

    I have been working at OHSU

    Pros

    The overall atmosphere of the research side of OHSU is casual and laid back, even amongst high profile scientists.

    Cons

    There are VERY limited growth opportunities if you join as a postdoc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make the compensation of senior research positions competitive and have more of these positions available since in this job market, postdocs have no place to go and are valuable contributors to the science.

    I have been working at OHSU

    Pros

    Gaining experience in a variety of areas for developing your career in healthcare.
    Overall, great "on-service" medical teams family medicine & general medicine physician teams

    Cons

    Depending on the unit you work, most shifts experience with extremely difficult patient demographics (ie: constant physical, verbal and emotional abuse)

    Benefits USED to be reasonable...though every year they are diminishing and changing policies, increasing deductibles, and percentage of employee payout ( for the worse), and dropping features and services.

    HORRIBLE "off service" unprofessionalism from specialty service physicians.

    Worst of all? Unprofessional management who is completely out of touch with the realities of day to day operations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    KNOW your staff and their WORK, find redeaming qualities in your staff members, encourage and develop those qualities and invest in them, you will cultivate productivity instead of firing off "nasty gram" emails by the hundreds and expecting a high moral, and better team work. Negativity breeds Negativity; it just doesn't work.
