Roll the Dice
Assistant (Former Employee) –  Portland, ORJuly 24, 2018
This large institution is hard to describe to the outside person, anyone that has worked in a big place would get it. No matter what department you end up in, you hear "the OHSU Way" and it is the "excuse" for many things. Mismanagement, lack of training that management, lack of resources, long wait times for anything and everything, lack of training the employees. It's often the first lesson learned when you are a new employee and it is a sad thing to have to tell people, you know when they lose that brightness, when the honeymoon is over and they are now just like you with less enthusiasm and less creative juices flowing because the mismanagement and lack of planning and lack of proper processes anywhere don't allow it. If you are lucky, you make great friends tho. The people there can't be beat. But if you aren't it is slow torture in a sea of clicks and people that don't look you in the eye, don't say good morning or speak to you the entire day, don't speak in the halls or collaborate in any meaningful way. Isolation isn't how a team works. I have experienced both at OHSU which is why I can say it is a roll of the dice depending on what department and what management you end up with.
Pros
great pay, benefits, friendships
Cons
management, commute, clicks, culture grind

I worked here for about 20 years. Generally it is a good place to work. Many talented scientists here, so you can have exciting discussion about science.

OHSU is great to work for
Registered Nurse (Current Employee) –  Portland, ORJuly 20, 2018
RNs in the ICUs choose their own assignments which is the best part of working here! Union rules are closely followed for fairness. I feel like RNs have a voice in what improvements are needed in their units. Very flexible scheduling, follows seniority and union rules.
Pros
Great pay, great benefits, choose your own assignemtns, shared governance
Cons
parking

Union hospital
PAS Financial Specialist (Former Employee) –  Portland, ORJuly 17, 2018
Ohsu is a union hospital. Very limited employee parking so all employees were only charged six dollars (I think) per pay period to have access to bus and train 24/7 which was very helpful. People/coworkers very nice and helpful to new hire

RN intern (Former Employee) –  Portland, ORJuly 12, 2018
for the most part, I enjoyed working at OHSU. The training and hospital itself are top notch. A typical day can be long hours at times, but this is not out of the ordinary and you do get ovetime if this happens. Enjoyed most of the people I worked with and management was helpful.
Pros
Training, Company Recognition
Cons
Long hours at times

Nurse Coordinator and Research Nurse (Former Employee) –  Portland, ORJuly 11, 2018
As a nurse, you get to be involved in a team approach to patient care, and your input is considered important. Also, being the teaching hospital that it is, gives you access to the types of cases that you really don;t see at other healthcare facilities.
Pros
benefits, salary
Cons
Work load was heavy

The people are super friendly, the job itself is fantastic. At the department I work at the pace fluctuates, some days it's mellow but other days it seems there's not enough time in a day. Enjoyable overall.
I love the flexibility, for the most part I can arrange my daily tasks however I want as long as it all gets done!

Cons
Management can be a bit hard to work with at times

Exciting academic medicine environment. Social work wages are not competative with other regional employers. Vacation and sick time is not great. Commute to OHSU hill is terrible and expensive parking.

very unhealthy work environment
Medical Assistant Back Office (Current Employee) –  Portland, ORJune 23, 2018
management is terrible,. They care about their hospital scores more than anything. They do not support their staff especially with abusive patients. They are all about the patients and do not care about employee retention. Management never around, works from home and takes hear say over actual experience. Culture is accepting to only certain individuals. Absolutely horrendous to anyone with slightly different backgrounds. Would not recommend to anyone who wishes to be treated decently. Support staff gets treated terribly by Drs and surgeons as well as management.
Pros
health insurance, good pay
Cons
bullying

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.

Patient Services Representative (Former Employee) –  Portland, ORJune 13, 2018
There are far too many reasons why I loved this employer, the benefits were awesome, the pay was fair, I always felt safe and respected at work. There are many growth opportunities available for employees. OHSU paid for the yearly bus pass to ensure employees commuted using public transportation.
Pros
fair pay, benefits, plentiful growth opportunities
