Current Employee - Graduate Research Assistant in Baltimore, MD

I have been working at Johns Hopkins University full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Few distractions. Very comprehensive university services, especially library service and gym. Most colleagues have very high academic standings.

Cons

Very small campus consists of small departments. A lot of research directions are simply absent. Few recreational (other than the gym) options. No good restaurants nearby and the security situation deteriorates only 2 blocks from campus. To put it simple: lots of work but no life.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

A large number of professors which serves as the backbone for the research of this institution are retiring in the near future. There are, however, not enough effort to recruit new people to ensure a smooth transition.
