    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Johns Hopkins University full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You are in a very collaborative environment where you can get people to do things for you across departments. You can speak with first rate scientists in other departments.

    Cons

    The Urology Department where I worked there are VERY few good papers coming out. People are very nice, but they are not good researchers. It is no wonder Urology brought Johns Hopkins down to the 3rd best hosipital from number 1. Also, I was laid off with only 2 months notice when my director knew my appointment would not be extended 1 year ahead of time.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with your employees. Yes, you are not very good researchers, however you can become better by relying more on the advice of your betters, there are many many national academy winners at Johns Hopkins. Talk to them.

    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Johns Hopkins University full-time

    Pros

    Campus is beautiful, lots of opportunities for continued learning, and a top-tier research university. Hopkins is a great place to study, Brody Learning Commons was a great addition to campus. There is an obvious push for diversity among faculty.

    Cons

    The buildings are often in disrepair and progress is slow. Additionally, the area immediately surrounding campus is dangerous and we have frequent reports of robberies, even during daylight hours.

    Advice to Management

    Security needs to be improved in order to continue attracting top level students and professors. It is absurd how frequently reports happen across the street from campus with no security apparently available.


  7. TA for graduate level courses

    I worked at Johns Hopkins University part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    High quality students, very knowledgeable professors

    Cons

    Courses are very short (8 weeks)

    Advice to Management

    TAs experience varies a lot by professor of course; providing additional independent (department or school wide) resources for TAs would be helpful. The ones already in place are useful.

    Pros

    Johns Hopkins University is a very attractive employer in many areas. It's an intellectually challenging environment, there are plenty of opportunities for professional networking and training, benefits are very good and work-life balance is respected.

    Cons

    Working at Johns Hopkins University contains its downside. Some faculty and senior staff are protected due to reputation, despite their abusive, mean attitude and deportment towards staff. Some members of executive leadership have disregard for department-level management.
