I worked at Johns Hopkins University as an intern for less than a year

Pros

Small teams make this place feel smaller than it is. Being government affiliated, you know what to expect in terms of pay and so on. The projects I got to work on were interesting and useful. The people there are smart and stimulating.

Cons

Once again, it is government affiliated, so you get the cons of that as well. They do have stringent hiring requirements as well, and the culture is a little stuffier, with an older, more conservative workforce.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I didn't see much of the overall structure or other teams when I worked here, so I have none.

    Pros

    The institution itself is phenomenal and you have the opportunity to interact and collaborate with some really brilliant people. If you take initiative, you are given the opportunity to learn and work fairly independently. The prestige of the institution is widely recognized.

    Cons

    Hopkins often feels too large and incredibly decentralized. If you decide, as an employee/new hire, to work hard and take on new tasks and challenges, you should be prepared to not see any increase in title/pay. Hopkins often allows good employees to take on more and more responsibility without appropriately acknowledging them. When it is a busy time of year, things are absolutely chaotic. The institution, specifically leadership, is very traditional and youth is discreted in the sense that colleagues can be very condescending to younger employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work hard to inspire and motivate talented and hardworking employees. Crack down on the culture of "passing the buck" and delegation of tasks to inappropriate employees. Hold people in management positions accountable for the professional development of their teams.
