    World-class training environment, but can be difficult to advance.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Focus on supporting trainees and established scientists over continued expansion.

    I worked at Johns Hopkins Medicine full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Enjoyed working with some co-workers and healthcare providers. Great hours, no weekends or holidays

    Cons

    Very corporate, lots of butt kissing, toxic environment at times, a lot of bullying from management, discrimination

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    After leaving the company I completed an exit interview. This questionnaire included some pretty disturbing insights into the way the office functioned and how people were treated by management. The fact that JH ignored it, really bothers me. Hopkins is supposed to be a company that stands on equal treatment of everybody. After working for this company they are not prestigious, they are not equal, and the people they have representing this company are disgusting in character. The pay is not great at all and employees are completely expendable to JH. This company has left a terrible taste in my mouth and I do not trust them at all. I will never even seek care through them again, which is sad because I LOVED the healthcare providers. I'm not bitter haha

    Pros

    Great place to work to build a great resume and to get good experience. There are a lot of very knowledgeable people there, willing to teach you whatever you need to know. They are also big advocates on education, and will pay for many classes or online courses if they apply to your position.

    Cons

    They do not pay well, and it is very hard to be promoted within the Nursing Administration. They require a masters degree for a management position, rather than experience which is stupid in my opinion.

    Pros

    Hopkins draws some really brilliant research PIs, most of whom also are very approachable. Support for grad students and postdocs is adequate to excellent depending on the department you choose. The benefits are usually outstanding.

    Cons

    The food isn't great and access to surrounding areas by public transportation is spotty. Security concerns bother some people but I've never felt threatened on or around campus.

    Pros

    Benefits and Best doctors and hospital care

    Cons

    no bonuses, expect emails and texts evenings and weekends without OT pay, no lunch breaks due to too much workload, dumping on by others under your bosses for extra workload, not mamy holidays recognized so you have to work those days when others are off for recognized holidays, you are expected to come to work during snow storms and hurricanes because you were a Hopkins badge, even though you are a glorified secretary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    respect your employees' lives, you work from home occasionally, they should be able to do the same. We pay for parking in the City (very expensive) while executives pay nothing. You get bonuses we do NOT get a bonus.
