Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Johns Hopkins University full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Well known, top tier hospital. World renowned experts in many fields. Looks good on your resume.

Cons

Even in the research areas, more consideration is given to MDs than Ph.Ds. Postdoc pay is lousy. Bureaucracy is high.

Advice to Management

Read a management book or two. Give perks to deserving employees. Build a collaborative atmosphere.

    I have been working at Johns Hopkins University full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Health and retirement benefits quite good, on par with faculty for even 'assistant research scientist'. Happy to keep me employed so long as I bring in grant money-this was a postdoc-type position for me, and not all institutions would be so flexible

    Cons

    Little career mentoring or support for finding the next position. Computer support was completely inadequate-IT staff are overworked, support too many people
