Too much divisiveness between haves and have nots
Web Developer (Former Employee), COEMarch 16, 2013
Pros: good bennies
Cons: top heavy management. 4 to 1 but should be 10 employees to each 1 manager
Classified (union) employees get paid poor wages! Unclassified have no job security. Way too top heavy with management! Climate varies a lot depending what department you work for. I ended up with a bully boss who got away with everything and answered to no one. One plus: very good insurance and retirement compared to the private sector.

Excellent environment to learn, work, and grow!
Computer Lab Assistant (Former Employee), Lundquist School of BusinessNovember 24, 2012
Pros: beautiful environment and people
Cons: lots of rain, but a small price to pay for the beauty it creates.
I should have never left the U of O.

Wonderful environment in all ways; the weather (if you love rain), the air, the trees, the people, and the concern for our, and the planet's future.

Loved working at the Knight Library, and the Lundquist School of Business Computer Lab.

Productive and learning environment
FRONT DESK OFFICE ASSISTANT (Former Employee), Eugene, ORAugust 8, 2012
I really enjoyed working in the Architecture department at the University of Oregon. I applied without any knowledge of the Architecture program, and I was able to quickly learn all about it. Everyone is very friendly and it a great place to work, especially if you are a student and juggling working with school

Graduate Teaching Assistant
Teacher's Assistant (Former Employee), Anthropology departmentApril 30, 2012
Pros: pays for school plus small salary.
Cons: grading papers is a lot of work, during finals week none the less.
Graduate Teaching Fellowship is a fun way to pay for graduate school while helping the professor and undergraduate students. If you qualify for financial support, for that is. If teaching the students directly is your thing, teaching a discussion section is available. Some classes even allow experienced GTFs to teach a full class. The only downside – more... is grading the students papers and homework. – less

Great campus and people
Graduate Teaching Fellow (Former Employee), Eugene, ORApril 30, 2012
Pros: healthcare
I enjoyed living in Eugene and working at the University of Oregon. I learned how to teach students in a friendly manner while still maintaining authority. A portion of my GTF position included research, which primarily consisted of coding in MATLAB. The best part of this job was the interaction with students and the hardest part of the job was accepting – more... that model development is a continuous process but that at some point you have to halt development and assess your working results. – less
