    Offers a lifetime of challenges and rewards.

    IT Director (Current Employee) Baltimore, MD

    ProsBeing part of a world-class organization with a positive mission that actually helps improve the human condition locally and around the world. Considerable flexibility that helps with work-life balance.

    ConsSlightly lower salaries, no big-time perks (like stock options). Enterprise-level decentralization that, on the one hand, is good and encourages self-initiative and minimizes bureaucracy, but on the other hand is frustrating when centralized resources and/or funding are required and very hard to come by

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo much more to encourage and support entrepreneurship, coordination of resources such as core facilities, and put MUCH more emphasis on internal communication (like there's an HPC facility being built at the Bayview campus but nobody except those most immediately involve really know what's going on with it, or even know it's happening).

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    In the labs, but not for long...

    Postdoctoral Research Fellow (Current Employee) Baltimore, MD

    ProsThe 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.

    ConsThe 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.

    ProsGreat 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.

    ConsThe 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.

    Excellent academic opportunity

    Postdoctoral Fellow (Current Employee) Baltimore, MD

    ProsThis 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.

    ConsSalary at the lower end of comparative competitive salaries.
