    I have been working at OHSU full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Big university, unique combination of academia/research/clinical settings, lots of departments and specialties to help with policy and procedure, if you get in good with a decent department then they can make room for you to grow

    Cons

    Sometimes too restrictive in policies and procedures. The running joke is that you need to form 3 committees to decide if you should add another committee so things can be slow moving to change.

    Advice to Management

    Honor and Reward your middle management!!! Your department administrators work hard and they need to hear it. Keep going with the diversity and inclusion initiatives :)
