What Employees Say
I have been working at State of Oregon full-time for more than a year
Rewarding and meaningful work serving Oregonians. Amazing work life balance - telecommuting options and opportunities to travel around the state. The base salary may be lower than if you take your... data analysis talents to Silicon Valley or the financial sector, but the benefits and job security working for the state are unparalleled. And of course it's much easier to go to work knowing you're helping (or at least trying your best to help - see below) fellow citizens, not tracking their consumer habits for targeted advertising.
Bureaucracies can be slow and idiosyncratic. Not all of the research you do will be used to enact real changes to improve the lives of Oregonians. More often than not it will fall on deaf ears. You... have to navigate within the system and keep chipping away at the problems one report or study at a time.
