    Pros

    - my P I has a laissez-faire attitude but with high expectations and is very helpful
    - great flexibility of working anywhere and wherever is convenient

    Cons

    - coworkers can be competitive and unhelpful, or have very busy schedules such that it is hard to stay on schedule

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - check up on each student individually and have some tangible way to monitor progress from each contributor
    - have students work on different projects

    I worked at Johns Hopkins University

    Pros

    The Johns Hopkins name is meaningful--especially in medicine and medical robotics. The work was interesting and the people were amazing.

    Cons

    There is a lot of focus on getting work done and learning quickly which sometimes requires long-hours, but overall, the benefits outweigh the negative many times over.

  6. Hopkins is great!
