    I worked at OHSU full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent culture, informed clientele and employees. Enjoyed plenty of autonomy and understanding of the music industry as a whole. The people there are unique and constantly seeking ways to improve and think about the customer.

    Cons

    Lack of clarity, sometimes it's helpful to know where we are and where we are going. The benefits of autonomy sometimes means you are left to your own buckets. The need for data in other areas is sometimes lacking.

    Advice to Management

    Please update communications and meetings protocols. The need for new technologies is very important. Please keep the customer in mind as you do but always maintain the wonderful culture there.

    Pros

    Excellent atmosphere, dedicated co-workers, fulfilling work.

    Cons

    Management can be disorganized at times - I've had 3 direct supervisors in the 1.5 years I've been with the company. Pay is slightly lower than a 'competitive wage,' and merit-based raises are hard to come by, but OHSU offers amazing benefits.
