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

    Pros

    OHSU serves the sickest of the sick in Oregon this attracts really smart hard working people. Overall there are a lot of opportunities for growth if you demonstrate competencies. The organization moves fast and always looks towards improvement.

    Cons

    Parking can be a challenge but they offer good public transit pass deals. Making concrete decisions can be a challenge because leadership tries to get all stakeholder inputs.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on culture and recognize young millennial leaders

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

    Pros

    Great place to learn and grow. The OHSU core laboratory and satellite labs offer many testing opportunities for individuals who want to gain experience. Friendly, diverse atmosphere. Good benefits package right off the bat: medical, dental, vision, life, disability etc.

    Cons

    Marquam Hill parking/commuting is absolutely horrendous, and something needs to be done. Cost of living is high, and MLT/MLS wages need to be better, especially if they want to attract talent and keep it.

    Pros

    Good hours and great people. It's also a beautiful city with a great public transit system. I take a bus to a train to a tram and overlook a great view of the city

    Cons

    Low salary and slow corporate climb. I've been working here for over 20 years and the pay goes up and down. I even lost all my sick leave as I retired for a year and came back

    Advice to Management

    clarity in salary advancement. I've worked at OHSU for 20 years and between switching jobs I have gone almost to the beginning of the 20 year career.
