    Pros

    If you have a good PI or Post-Doc, you will likely find yourself with more independence and responsibility in the lab.

    Cons

    Retirement provider could be better, and orientation is heavily focused at the medical mission.

    Advice to Management

    Include some directions of day to day operations, such as phone use and who to call for outside services.

    I have been working at OHSU full-time

    Pros

    Magnet certified, union represented (look on ONA's website for the entire contract, under AURN, which lists compensation tables, etc), competitive pay ($35.23 starting pay for no experience with BSN), 4.8 weeks vacation to start (increasing every 5 years to a max of 7.22 after 20 years), compensation for certification, greatly subsidized bus pass ($50 for a YEARLY pass right now - an $1100 value!), beautiful views, great food (including a natural mini grocery store), bike valet, Tillikum bridge (coming soon!), cash compensation for bike commuters, almost 100% covered medical benefit (dental about $150/mo for family, I pay $7 a month for my whole family's medical), 12% employer contribution to retirement plan w/o required employee match OR access to PERS (or whatever pers is called these days - OPSRP?? - a defined *benefit* program, not a defined *contribution* program) with employee required contribution of 6%, annual 2.25% cost of living raise in addition to annual raise, tuition reimbursement, mostly nice and friendly people, HUGE emphasis on diversity, everyone works every other weekend (might be considered a con but it makes it fair for everyone and with seniority you can request more off. Comes with a 10% weekend differential), unit based practice counsels, lots of free continuing ed opportunities. This company expects a lot but I think gives a lot in return.

    Cons

    Usual corporate bs, usual trappings of nursing culture (worse depending on unit - not enough staff, nurses eating young, etc), parking is $13 a day and there is a several year waiting list for annual passes (which you still have to pay $13 a day for - you're just guaranteed a spot that way), teaching hospital (which is rad, because you get to see and learn a lot, but also you have to deal with new residents every. single. year.)

    Advice to Management

    Hire more CNAs!
