Patient Services Representative (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – June 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.
Patient Care (Current Employee) – OHSU Hospital – June 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.
worker bee (Current Employee) – Portland, OR – June 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
Certified Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – June 9, 2018
In the 3.5 years I was there, we had 4 different managers, the director of allied medical department quit, and there were at least 10 different nurses that came through the clinic. Morale was an issue.
Transportation Aide (Current Employee) – Portland, OR – May 31, 2018
Management was helpful. Quick paced environment and very physical job. Parking at the main campus is not good and use of public transportation is limited depending on what times of the day you work (not good for swing shift).

Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Tualatin, OR – May 18, 2018
I worked for a wonderful team at Community Hematology and Oncology OHSU Knight Cancer Institute. Having five locations, Beaverton, Tualatin, NW Portland, Gresham, East Portland allowed me wonderful experience and life long bonds with our community. I desire to provide excellent patient care and our group made it happen.
Limited support from management but great therapy staff
Occupational Therapist OTR/L (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – May 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.)
Support from other therapists and medically complex patients for good learning experiences

Dispatchers handle emergency and non-emergency calls for service, maintain two-way radio contact with Police Officers, Community Service Officers, and maintenance personnel, monitors campus alarms, operates the Access Control systems, and operated telephones and communications equipment in a telecommunications center with in the Department of Public Safety (OHSU Police Department). You learn alot of skills that allow you to move to other police departments.
Phlebotomist (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – May 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.
Former Employee (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – May 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.
