    Pros

    Discount tuition, flexible work hours, quiet work life. Great retirement plan (PEBB).

    Cons

    Everything moves slow. Technologies are up to a decade behind the times. Many of your coworkers are people who attended Portland State, then got a job at Portland State, and have no other work experience. Due to the state retirement plan there are lots of lifers.

    Advice to Management

    The work environment needs an influx of energy and enthusiasm.
