Pros and Cons
someone who works there (Current Employee) –  Portland, ORAugust 18, 2016
Pros - great work/life balance, great co-workers, on site gym at HQ, great views from HQ office, lots of food options on site, great benefits plans, compensation is at market level if you factor in PERS (otherwise slightly below market)

Cons - depending where you live the commute can be bad, cultural differences between airport and marine, old school management, very hierarchical, very difficult to advance your career, siloed communication, turf battles, resistance to change, strive for consensus makes decision making way too slow.

Working for the Port of Portland I was able to further my knowledge of security both locally, as well as on an international level. Benifits and pay were extremely competitive. although the environment presented challenges. It was well worth the 8 yrs i spent working for them.
