    The worst thing about the tuition reimbursement benefit is that it can only be applied to credits offered by Johns Hopkins University.

    Best thing is the health and retirement benefits. Worst is the cost of parking.

    Relative to many companies, Hopkins offers decent benefits. Unfortunately, they are declining year by year.

    No company contributions for two years and then contributions are ultimately based on age; tuition assistance for graduate school is very disappointing! Healthcare options are decent.

    Health insurance is great, some discounts for city companies

    It is pretty comprehensive and has been easy to use for routine occurrences. Dental insurance is an optional add on that is probably not worth it.

    Low-pay but high flexibility job.

    The university is not particularly family friendly, but tries to sell itself as such, which is annoying. No guaranteed protected time off after having a baby, unless you qualify for FMLA, much less paid time off. I did qualify for FLMA and got paid leave because my boss is great, but not everyone here has a great boss and requiring someone to come back to work immediately after delivering is really terrible public health (ironically, JHU has the top rated school of public health in the country). In addition, the university makes a big deal of its on-site "subsidized" childcare, which is 19-22K/yr for infant care (in Baltimore, which is not high COL), with no part time options for infants. They do provide (small) vouchers for families with income < 50K/yr, but 20K/yr is not exactly affordable even if your household income is 70 or 80K/year. My friends in Silicon valley pay less, in a much higher COL area.

    This wouldn't bother me nearly as much if the university just owned the fact that they are not family friendly, but they keep trying to sell themselves as something that they are not.
