Hectic but rewarding state agency
Staff (Current Employee) – Salem, OR – May 5, 2017
Busy days and frequent evening and weekend work for managers. I learned here about state health policy making and program development and administration. Management, especially senior executives, turns over often due to changes in the office of the governor. Workplace culture is essentially do more with less, since the state's budget is always in bad condition. Hardest part of the job is delivering quality work everyday with inadequate systems, resources, and rushed timelines on every project. Most enjoyable part of the work is the invaluable assistance we provide in making healthcare accessible for one million Oregonians.
Rewarding, good wages and benefits
Every biennium the plans change and budgets are always being cut
