    Pros

    Name is recognized all over the world. Lots of patient diversity; people travel from around the globe for treatment. Tons of procedures, rare diseases... a student's dream. Infinite learning opportunities through lectures, conferences, visiting experts, etc, when schedule permits. New nurse program is helpful.

    Cons

    Doctors playing "God." Salaries lower than other hospitals just because of the name. Very little control over schedule as an inpatient nurse. Everyone is expected to rotate AM/PM at first, with high turnover in the first 1-2 years.

    Advice to Management

    Nurses are the backbone of your hospital!

    Pros

    Great leadership team. They emphasize professional growth and development. They make efforts to listen and engage their staff. They truly care about the services they provide to the community.

    Cons

    They do not compensate well. Their HR department is slow and unresponsive. Because they have a long history as a research-oriented institution, it's taken long longer to adapt to changes in technology and customer service.

    Advice to Management

    Increase your benefit packages to retain top talent in non-clinical roles. The future of healthcare will make non-clinical staff members as important as clinical staff members.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities for improvement, many doors open for research scientists. There is a lot of cutting edge work going on.

    Cons

    Sometimes it can be hard to get papers published. The Hopkins Hospital is not in the best of areas.

    Advice to Management

    Accept a great variety of people and open doors to new incoming students who can benefit greatly from the research.

    Pros

    Benefits are pretty good, job security, excellent resources for professional development

    Graduate student stipend is rough, but dictated by NIH, so not their fault.

    Pros

    I thought that the work life balance was great; it is a learning environment and most people will take the time to teach you rather than do it themselves.

    Cons

    The cons were that there was not always something to do. There are many interns usually so sometimes you need to find a way to fill your time.

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Unparalleled research training, colleagues, and mentors - top-tier clinicians, innovative educators, and brilliant scientists abound. Ample opportunity at the graduate and postdoctoral levels to do translational research with the potential for great impact.

    Cons

    Very challenging to advance within the system. Extremely competitive (for better or worse) environment that can at times do more to quell innovation than encourage it. Expansionist values sometimes lead to neglect of core research infrastructure.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on supporting trainees and established scientists over continued expansion.

    Pros

    Work is meaningful. If you're motivated, there are opportunities to be creative and try new things. The benefits are good (esp. if you have kids).

    Cons

    Pay is on the low side ... People forget that it is a nonprofit.
