    I have been working at Portland State University as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great downtown area with food-carts. Facilities for computer and engineering field are excellent. A lot of available funds for students to do research, start-up, developing innovative ideas. Very diverge with multi-national annual events such as International Night, Chinese Night, Vietnamese Night, Japanese Night, etc.

    Cons

    Intuition keeps increasing. Not a lot of available scholarship. Student health care is expensive. Some of the fee could be opt-out instead of opt-in.


  2. "Good co-workers"
