    I worked at University of Oregon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Steady income. Nice benefits. Some nice co-workers.

    Cons

    Culture is toxic, most student record specialists are too busy being annoyed that students are causing them work to remember they are there to HELP students. Some lead workers get away with absolutely horrendous behavior toward staff and students. One woman regularly berates and makes staff members cry and never gets reprimanded. Management is secretive and not interested in helping you grow or progress. The university of Oregon offers tuition discount on classes - but the registrar's office is so inflexible and not at all committed to education. They don't let their staff take advantage of this benefit.

    Advice to Management

    I believe a lot of management changes have occurred since I left. I hope new management is more dedicated to the growth and success of their staff.
