Pleasant place to work, but parking is horrible on the hill.

I worked at OHSU

Pros

This varies widely depending on where you work and what capacity you work in within the hospital. I worked in research and enjoyed it. Fortunately I worked with great people. Also, I enjoyed the food options there and the campus is beautiful during the warmer months.

Cons

Unless you are there 5+ years, good luck getting a parking pass. If you drive, want to park at work and are relatively new there you will need to fork $10 a day to park on the hill. I spent a fortune working there for a year. Charging employees the same high rate as anyone else is very unfortunate.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make parking more realistic for employees who do not want to take the bus.

    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.
