    Positive Outlook

    Pros

    Review of previous class content to refresh skills.

    Cons

    I guess the only con is that sometimes helping other students may take away from time on your own studies.

    Pros

    The Oregon University System has served as the governing board for the public universities in Oregon. The Governor is phasing out the board in favor of a large central education system, with independent boards at each University campus.

    Cons

    Most of the campuses are anxious for their independence and greater control over their finances. Loss of a central agency regulating finances will put students and faculty at risk of escalating tuition costs and continued outsourcing faculty jobs to adjuncts.

    Advice to Management

    The Oregon University System has well balance leave and work hour policies. Employees are encouraged to focus on their work, and leave at reasonable hours for family and personal time. Salaries tend to be low, but benefits are good.

    I have been working at Oregon University System as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Really nice people, great opportunity and a great place for personal growth. Really enjoyed working on project with the team as they were all supportive in gathering resources as an inclusive community.

    Cons

    Sometimes the goals that are being attempted seem very large at first and it is hard to wrap your head around what is trying to be accomplished. It is a little discouraging at first but you have to understand the ability of the people in the office- they really make things happen. All goals in the end were met with flying colors. Very impressed.
