    Pros

    Large network, great schools and patient care. Facilities are tremendous.

    Cons

    Slow to adapt to technology, It takes a long time to get much accomplished there. Many of the decisions have to go though Medical staff and the Medical staff doesn't always offer the best leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Put less emphasis on the brick and mortar and invest more into emerging technology. Also formalize the internship and externship process for training experiences, don't masquerade as a medical school.

    I worked at Kennedy Krieger Institute full-time

    Pros

    KKI is a great small company to work for. Great missing and patient care. Good benefit package and vacation and sick days.

    Cons

    Not the best salary compared to other for profit laboratories. Not a lot of upward mobility available. However that is due to the fact that employees like being there, so they don't want to leave.

    I have been working at Kennedy Krieger Institute full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Kennedy Krieger is committed to its patients and students. The Institute always has the latest and best therapies, teaching methods, and technologies. Kennedy also offers good benefits to its employees.

    Cons

    Kennedy is less concerned with employee satisfaction and well-being. It is not uncommon for staff to feel over-stretched and unsupported from administration. There are high turn-over rates for paraprofessionals and teaching staff because of this.

    Advice to Management

    Keep all employees in the loop with regards to changes in their employment status (hours, wages, etc.). It is unfair to expect good morale when employees are regularly deceived and lied to about important information. Treat all employees with respect and do not diminish their experience because of corporate arrogance.
