Limited opportunities/

Administrative Support (Former Employee)
Portland, OR

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

ProsGreat 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 Senior ManagementNeed 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
