    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

    Collaborative, friendly environment for graduate student. Great graduate program with great mentors.

    Cons

    The research may be too classical. The medical campus is not safe because of its location.

    Advice to Management

    Put more security resources to ensure the safety of the medical campus.


  9. Nice place to work

    I have been working at Johns Hopkins Medicine full-time

    Pros

    There is a decent benefit packages and exceptional health insurance here. Tuition remission, 403 b contributions, etc. It is an engaging environment as well.

    Cons

    The pay for most positions at JHU seems toe be quite low in comparison to other institutions in the area. This may be because they hire so many people and because benefits are good. Not sure.

    Advice to Management

    I don't really have any advice for management. They seem to do a good job of overseeing employees and making resources for employees well known and easy to find.


  10. Get paid to *say* you work here.

    Pros

    Looks good on a resume, great teamwork, good support system, If you are a new to practice nurse, it will definitely catapult your career

    Cons

    Horrible scheduling, management only cares about customer service and not clinically helping patients, micromanaged environment, nurses are salaried opposed to hourly. Overload of meetings that are irrelevant and you are not getting paid for.

    Advice to Management

    Worry more about patient care rather than if a patient did not get a cup of ice. Listen to your staff. There needs to be an assessment of the managers.
