I have been working at Johns Hopkins University full-time for 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Current Employee - Assistant Research Scientist  in  Baltimore, MD
    Current Employee - Assistant Research Scientist in Baltimore, MD

    I have been working at Johns Hopkins University full-time for 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

    Former Employee - Recreation Center Monitor  in  Baltimore, MD
    Former Employee - Recreation Center Monitor in Baltimore, MD

    I worked at Johns Hopkins University part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Johns Hopkins University is full of great people in a supportive atmosphere. A lot is expected of you, but they have every right to demand the best support for their students.

    Cons

    I can't really think of any cons that would apply to the entire university. I worked part-time at the Recreation Center as a Monitor, which was rather boring and repetitive, but you can't really expect more from a job the main requirement of which is to watch students and university affiliates and make sure they don't hurt themselves or the facility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You could consider rotating employees through the different relatively unskilled positions to give them a bit of fresh air.
