    Graphic Artist for marketing department

    Graphic Artist (Current Employee)
    Eugene, OR

    ProsWorking on campus as a student was a great experience due to the ease of scheduling. I could always schedule my hours to work around my classes which took away a lot of stress. I also feel privileged to have a job as as graphic artist while in school.

    ConsSometimes the load of school work became rather heavy which made the balance of work and school a bit more stressful.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe marketing group is what makes your business look good, yet often times we wished we could do projects that required funds we didn't have.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    ProsI always had the chance and the support I needed to continue building my skills.

    Fun People, Boring Work

    Admissions Assistant (Current Employee)
    Eugene, OR

    ProsFriendly work environment. Very flexible schedule and on campus. Perfect for a student's unpredictable life. Very enjoyable being the center node for all admissions information and processes. Main responsibilities keeping information flowing between departments.

    ConsWork space open to public with history of personal items stolen. Parts of job consisted of database management, which is mind numbing.

    Good Place to Start

    Graduate Research Fellow (Former Employee)
    Eugene, OR

    ProsRelaxed atmosphere, are willing to work around your schedule. Great benefits. If you want to work with very intelligent people that share similar values, this may be a good place to choose.

    ConsReimbursements can often be a hassle. You sometimes will spend more time dealing with these issues than you might want to. Personal growth is limited if you are not going to get a doctorate.

    Faculty instructor for Education Technologies

    Library Student Assistant (Former Employee)
    Eugene, OR

    ProsWorking in the education field is amazing. The focus of the job is to improve minds, and that is very satisfying. Univ. of Oregon is set on a campus that feels like a forest, with a thousand trees encircled by the Willamette river.

    ConsCompensation is average, all thing being equal. The parking near campus is dreadful. Having to ride a bike keeps you in shape, that may be negative for some folks.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
