    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at University of Oregon part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing healthcare, good community with other GEs, better pay than some graduate programs

    Cons

    Overly business-minded president who prefers to punish struggling departments rather than help them, employee rights are a constant struggle, tuition is increasing, not inclusive enough to minorities (while touting inclusivity), admin culture is too corporate to make any progressive changes right now.

    Advice to Management

    Reassess long term goals- help your students and underpaid employees rather than making them shoulder the burden of your greed.
    (Also leadership needs to be updated on Glassdoor- Scott Coltrane is retired)

    Create more projects for student workers.

    campus is pretty, summers are nice

  9. "Excellent way to pay for graduate school"

    Pros

    You are assigned to work with a professor to help teach a class. Most are interesting people and great to work with. The hours vary depending on the professor but I probably averaged about 10 hours / week, which was pretty typical. That leaves plenty of time to focus on your own work, but the position includes tuition remission and enough money to live on.

    Cons

    Some professors can be difficult to work with.


  10. "Easy"

    Easy and laid back, not a huge commitment.

    Cons

    Limited hours and low pay.
