Pros

Beautiful, environmentally-friendly campus. Educated, diverse population - collaboration between students and staff. Wide range of extracurricular activities and events available for staff. Non-smoking, bike paths, and free LTD bus rides for students and staff.

Cons

There is an on-going problem with bully bosses. Classified staff aren't always treated respectfully or professionally by Unclassified staff. Parking is expensive.

Advice to Management

Work with the union to provide a better work environment for Classified staff. Pay attention to recurring issues with problem departments and take action to minimize or eliminate them.

    Pros

    healthcare benefits are great... salaries decent--except for the high income tax in oregon sort of ruins the higher pay...

    Cons

    anyone with the title of "director" lets it go to their head... upper management is abusive towards lower level staff and students... faculty and chairs are clueless... if the building doesn't involve sports or the god athletes, it doesn't get renovated... you can join a union, but be prepared to be at ends with those in the upper echelons of the university... they don't look kindly on the plebeians.. the campus is located in Eugene, Oregon--for those who've never been, the town's basically a giant homeless camp...

    Advice to Management

    grow up--you are not god...


  2. Satisfactory over all.

    Pros

    Great Pay and Benefits
    Not very hard work, and 9-5 schedule
    Highly educated co-workers

    Cons

    The students you meet and develop relationships leave after 4 years (hopefully)
    They don't always hire from within
    long and extensive application

    Advice to Management

    Have a little more faith in the students, the humans frontal lobe doesn't fully develop until they turn 25. You were a stupid co-ed too at some point!
