Great co-workers!
Patient Care (Current Employee) –  OHSU HospitalJune 14, 2018
The people OHSU hires are amazing! Most departments don't have great management support but co-workers make coming to work enjoyable. The commute can be frustrating since you can't drive and park at work (or pay to park per day [$14] and mostly in the south waterfront). Therefore, public transportation for all and there can be rough commuting days.

LOGISTIC AIDE (Former Employee) –  Portland, ORJune 14, 2018
Great hospital to work for if you're a nurse, doctor and practitioner. The rest not so much. I don't really have much to say. Overall my experience was okay.

OHSU still pays its women employees less than males
Project expert (Former Employee) –  Portland, ORJune 11, 2018
If you are a woman be prepared to work harder, and not get paid at the same rate. Also be prepared not to be recommended for promotions if there is a male counterpart present in the equation.

Some managers are worse than others. It appears that most so called high and mighty professors are just out to get the other high and mighty professor.

If you are looking for creative energy similar to UCSF or Berkeley, forget about it.
Pros
Pays relatively well
Cons
Management is really poor

No management accountability
worker bee (Current Employee) –  Portland, ORJune 11, 2018
This could be a great place to work. However in my experience of being an employee for over a decade, I have found that the culture is one of management silos.

Managers are gods in their little world and there is no recourse if you end up in a brutal management silo. Managers are not accountable to anyone for their actions and god forbid your manager is also a physician. There is no where to go but to keep looking for a new job and hope the culture is different

HRIS Analyst, Healthcare Human (Former Employee) –  Portland, ORJune 9, 2018
Constantly changing mission and values. Striking difference in treatment of highly compensated versus hourly worker. They keep a steady pool of Unclassified employees for layoff pool.

Quick pace
Transportation Aide (Current Employee) –  Portland, ORMay 31, 2018

Pros

Great culture and people. Feel like part of a community and team. Amazing benefits and security. Only downside is lack of cohesive message, mobility upward could be better as well.

Limited support from management but great therapy staff
Occupational Therapist OTR/L (Former Employee) –  Portland, ORMay 9, 2018
As busy and chaotic as the therapy positions can be, the therapy staff is very supportive and are all friendly both at and outside of work. The hardest part is definitely the lack of support and understanding on the part of the management. The administrator for the therapy department consistently demonstrates that she does not value the role of some therapy disciplines. It is a great site to really explore some medically complex cases and get to understand the role of different medical professionals in a patient's care (ie, residents versus attending physicians, respiratory therapists, pharmacists, PAs or NPs, etc.)
Pros
Support from other therapists and medically complex patients for good learning experiences
Cons
The management and general administrative culture

I was a temporary worker
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Portland, ORMay 2, 2018
Human Resources, Human Research, Integrity, Diversity, and Communications are the departments I worked.

Job ambiguity is the culture for temporary employees.

This organization allows you to work in your strengths no matter what your actual job title may be.

You can learn as much as you desire about the organization but you will not get hired.

People are friendly for the most part.
Pros
University type of environment, an institution of learning.
Cons
Parking is very expensive.

Not a very good work enviroment
Phlebotomist (Former Employee) –  Portland, ORMay 2, 2018
Poor management; they only appeared to be concerned with their bottom line, bonus, and meetings. The person in charge of our department is anti-union and will make your life miserable if you use them to stand up for your self. Long commute, pay to park, and not very good health insurance. The best part of the job was working with the patients and getting to be a part of their care. Also a chance to work with very smart and competent employees.
Pros
Nothing is free not even on the holidays.
Cons
Pay for everything and its expensive.

Former Employee (Former Employee) –  Portland, ORMay 1, 2018
On the surface, it's a great company with meaningful Mission Statement. Depending on the department, re-structuring of management and leadership at the higher levels may cause disorganization to employees working on the ground.
