Current Employee - Research Associate in Baltimore, MD

I have been working at Johns Hopkins University full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Good infra-structure and office management support. There are bright people, but little support for young scientists. You are on your own, and need to go somewhere else if you want a permanent position.

Cons

No job security since many research positions are based on research grants. This could be different in medical school campus where some money comes from clinical revenue.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Environment is catered toward tenured professors. Teaching by some dispassionate professors is often dismal with less than 25% class attendance. If you have a research position, there is no job security and you need to provide 100% of your salary plus overhead cost from your grants.

    Pros

    Big Company therefore there is a very good scope of advancement after working here. Resume looks very good with such a big brand name to it.

    Cons

    In comparison to industry standards, the salary is very very low and basic. A professional can be stuck in his or her career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There should be a formal structure of management. The structural flow is very haphazard and there are many managers micromanaging every employee.
