    I have been working at OHSU full-time

    Pros

    OHSU Hospital is a pillar in Oregon. It provides high quality care for extremely sick folks that cannot or will not be cared for by other hospitals.

    Cons

    OHSU has old school, C-suite leadership that is reactive not proactive. It is conflicted on many major issues. Nothing changes unless something catastrophic happens. OHSU is able to do as well as it does because it has a lot of really bright individuals who give 200% to will it to be great.

    Advice to Management

    Make hard decisions. Create a vision for the future and prioritize. Value lower level employees who have high level potential.

    I have been working at OHSU full-time

    Pros

    OHSU provides a very nice benefits package with ample vacation/sick leave and good health benefits. You will also receive heavily subsidized public transit benefits. Recently, an office for Postdoctoral affairs has opened which provides some good career development opportunities. Generally, people seem to enjoy working at OHSU which provides for a good work environment.

    Cons

    One downside can be the commute to and from work. Parking is very limited so the majority of people use public transit to get to work. While we get a great deal on the price for transit, the commute can sometimes be onerous especially with bad traffic.
