    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

    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.

    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.
