    Pros

    Good work/family balance. Campus is a nice work environment.

    Cons

    Zero emphasis placed on developing JHU employees. No training to keep employees' skills current. Zero emphasis placed on career opportunities. A union for senior staff members would be really helpful to employees. I have never seen an employee promoted from within when a management slot opens up.

    Advice to Management

    Conduct an employee satisfaction survey. Promotion from within.

    Pros

    There was an abundance of opportunity to work on global research projects and great opportunities to diversify your own skill set.

    Cons

    There was often a frustrating lack of coordination within research teams that often contributed to inefficiencies in project schedules and budgets. The time and focus of project managers and principal investigators was often spread thin due to the large numbers of project and proposals they pursued.

    Advice to Management

    It seems like project responsibilities could be better distributed in a way that prevent key staff members from being overworked and contributed to the development of younger researchers.

    Pros

    The are opportunities for professional development and the benefits are good.

    Cons

    The vacation time and parking rates. Parking rates are determined by the location where you work. If you want to use the tuition reimbursement/remission to get a post-baccalaureate certificate/degree you can only use it at the University.
