    Current Employee - Research Associate in Portland, OR

    I have been working at OHSU full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Cutting edge research and medical care. Also houses schools of medicine, nursing, pharmacy, and ophthalmology. For a large organization it's pretty well-run. Quick hiring process. They have an excellent reputation throughout the state. The benefits, for now, are generous. Good workforce development commitment.

    Cons

    Pay is not competitive. Research doesn't compensate for prior years of professional experience.
    Battles with union contracts at the same time that the top six executives received over $600,000 dollars in annual bonuses, and the organization was trumpeting their most profitable year ever.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clearer communication as to why cuts in benefits to employees happen concurrently with large Allow opportunities for advancement in a more systematic way.
