I have been working at Johns Hopkins University

Pros

Johns Hopkins is a conglomerate of research, healthcare, and university. There are so many diverse opportunities, and excellent benefits in working with the supportive and powerful community here.

Cons

Because the organization is so enormous, there is a lot of bureaucracy, paperwork, and often roundabout ways to get things done.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Come down once in a while to a student group event. Not the big ones like President's Day of Service or Spring Fair, but show up to something small, like SASH's Satrangi last Thursday, or a Mock Trial tournament. It makes you more of a person rather than a figurehead. This not only goes for the main leadership like the president but all the deans, assistant deans, etc, etc.

    I have been working at Johns Hopkins University

    Pros

    I get great benefits on a small team in a relaxed work environment with lots of encouragement from my teammates and boss.

    Cons

    My salary is less than it might be if I were somewhere else, some personal values are not respected, there is a lack of parking

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep pushing for new and better technology. As a leader in the areas of your expertise, the tech team is just as important as field workers.
