    I have been working at OHSU full-time

    Pros

    It varies by department but our department has great work-life-balance, we are able to telecommute 1-2 days a week, and receive pretty good benefits.

    Cons

    Very political working atmosphere, which makes completing work difficult at times. Lots of big egos and academic credentials are of high importance. Average to below average pay compared to most companies in the area, except for those in executive-level positions. Parking is a source of revenue and employees have to pay $200/month for parking.

    Advice to Management

    Don't settle for mediocre candidates during the hiring process. This has been an institutional issue that has led to mediocre performance for the organization as a whole.


  7. "Ok place"

    Pros

    Meaningful work and decent health insurance

    Cons

    You feel taken advantage of, salary-wise and if you are unclassified they keep diminishing your benefits over the years. Doesn’t pay to be a long term employee there

    I have been working at OHSU full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits and pay is great, extremely competitive, weekends off are a nice perk.

    Cons

    Bad communication with upper management and baristas, a lot of times I would come in on my usual scheduled shift just to find out they changed your times or someone called out and they “forgot to tell you”. Not much training or expanded coffee knowledge (even when they tell you you’ll be getting official Stumptown Training). Most days it was pretty hard to want to go to work because baristas get so stressed out and the hospital staff can be really rude sometimes, it becomes a very dull and stressful work environment. Paid vacation is really nice but as a new barista you won’t get the times you want because they have so many “senior baristas” and you compete with other cashiers for time off slots.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your baristas! They are there everyday day in day out and most management people I see keep getting more and more thinned out in their “management duty area” to where you hardly see or talk to them. Keep them interested by always making it a challenge rather then pinning them against each other to compete for sales of product.
