    In the labs, but not for long...

    Current Employee - Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Baltimore, MD

    I have been working at Johns Hopkins Medicine full-time

    Pros

    The name recognition is good for publishing and grants. There are a lot of cross-over (clinical, translational, animal facility, multi-disciplinary, etc) opportunities...although it may be overwhelming and hard to identify where and how to get your foot in a new door.

    Cons

    The turn-over is shorter than I was used to at a research-intensive university. Mainly because there aren't really graduate students at the Medical Campus downtown. As a result, we get 1 year MD fellows, lab techs taking a year off to apply to med school, and the occasional postdoc (staying 2-3yrs max). But if you get independent funding, they will help to promote you to faculty status.

    Pros

    Great People who love working with curious minds. It offers a lot of intellectually stimulating opportunities. I met with various important doctors who made the environment inspiring.

    Cons

    The pay is not as high as it should be. Considering the difficulty of the science at hand, $17 an hour is not nearly enough considering the educational background.

    I have been working at Johns Hopkins Medicine full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    This is an excellent academic center and job opportunity. The environment is highly collaborative. The institution offers a unique opportunity to work and collaborate with individuals, departments, and fields outside one's own. While highly invested in their work, colleagues are exceptionally helpful with promoting academic development of younger trainees who are beginning their career. This is by far one of the premier academic institutions in the country and an exceptional location to trainee and beginning a rich academic career in medicine.

    Cons

    Salary at the lower end of comparative competitive salaries.
