I have been working at Jhpiego

Pros

As a Johns Hopkins University employee, you receive great medical benefits.

Opportunities for international travel.

Affiliation with the Johns Hopkins University provides access to speakers and events.

Cons

Compared to other private universities and their affiliates, Jhpiego (an affiliate of Johns Hopkins University) does not provide a substantial amount of money towards tuition remission. Offering more educational benefits to employees would be a plus.

Junior and mid-level staff are rarely promoted. Jobs are almost never circulated internally -- new hires are external, which does not present growth opportunities for existing staff.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

In order to retain staff, you need to present them with opportunities to grow professionally. Staff will quickly become frustrated and direct their energies elsewhere once they realize that promotions are few and far between.

    I have been working at Jhpiego full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    - Enormous opportunity to learn new skills (culture of learning and sharing)
    - Great life/work balance (lots of PTO)
    - Friendly people to work with
    - Excellent benefits
    - Long time employees

    Cons

    - Without a degree in the medical field, career advancement is more tricky (difficult to go from mid senior to senior level)
    - Mentorship in management is lacking. No focus on mentoring entry level and junior employees
    - Technical staff a bit snobbish (especially between themselves).
