ONPRC is a wonderful part of OHSU that invests in its employees

Research Assistant II (Current Employee)
Beaverton, OR

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

Pros~Great staff and atmosphere 
~Monumentally beneficial research succeeding with top investigators
~Interesting presentations and lectures that employees are encouraged to attend
~Great benefits, lots of vacation/sick time, 
~Implements "carrot not stick" approach to health- offering discounted insurance rate and cash to participate in healthy behavior like company paid Weight Watchers or logging workouts
~Approachable upper management
~Social events held for employees promotes strong community 
~Progressive company- equal rights for same sex marriages/partnerships

Cons~Academic research does not pay well (unless you are running the lab- sometimes) 
~Necessary use of animal models for research

Advice to Senior ManagementGreat job- keep listening to your employees and encouraging the positive atmosphere. Could use a bit more variety of on campus food options/ competition.

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

Research Associate (Current Employee)
Portland, OR

I have been working at OHSU full-time for more than a year


Pros: Cutting edge research and medical care. Also houses schools of medicine, nursing, pharmacy, and ophthalmology. For a large organization it's pretty… Cons: Pay is not competitive. Research doesn't compensate for prior years of professional experience. Battles with union contracts at the same time… Advice to Senior Management: Clearer communication as to why cuts in benefits to employees happen… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
