Mediocrity is Job Number One

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Baltimore, MD

ProsGreat benefits package, but salaries are far too low to retain competent staff, at least in IT. The work environment is pleasant, and there are some good people to work with, and the campus environment is nice.

ConsSenior management seem more interested in vendor kickbacks than maintaining reliable infrastructure or, god forbid, innovate. The Peter Principle is definitely at work here, and it shows. I once considered sending a fruit basket or flowers to a co-worker just because I was so delighted someone was actually competent at their job. Then I realized how crazy it is to be amazed by such an occurrence.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet out of these cozy (unethical?) vendor relationships, invest in innovation, show some real leadership, and actually start to take retaining competent staff seriously. JHU hemorrhages talent and replaces it with comfortable mediocrity.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
