Former Employee - Administrative Support  in  Portland, OR
Former Employee - Administrative Support in Portland, OR

I worked at OHSU full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Great retirement/health benefits/tends to be easygoing in terms of expectations.

Cons

- Limited career opportunities for non-faculty unless you like service/admin roles.
- Leadership concentrated in faculty who have no management training (not a lot of understanding of contemporary management practices).
- Top-down, command and control management style prevails (great for the military)
- Little effort at retaining staff/lots of effort at ensuring faculty is happy and their careers are developed.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need new blood at the top with leaders who have experience at large successful institutions beyond Oregon. Faculty performance should be measured by more than publications/grants generated.

    Pros

    Stability. Once in, it is hard to get fired / let go.

    Support for postdocs is minimal. Tech transfer office does not support innovation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Any sort of management would be helpful. It is non-existent right now.
