    There was so much management that it made it hard to make progress on projects on occassion

    Pros

    excellent tuition reimbursement benefits, health benefits are good for preventative care, lots of opportunities for professional growth, some continuing education courses are reimbursed

    Cons

    difficult to get an answer from HR, hard to get ahold of anyone really, parking is expensive, nursing must work 40 hr/wk to get full time benefits, hourly pay is on the lower side of MD, takes a long time to be reimbursed

    Advice to Management

    have people who actually enjoy being friendly answer phones, strive to respond to questions within 1 business day, return phone calls

    Very friendly staff. Great benefits. I love Johns Hopkins.

    Cons

    I couldn't find a job for my role advancement. Every available job required 1-3 years of experience in my new role.

    Advice to Management

    keep up the good work with hiring friendly staff and stay the best of the best.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits. Employers love the name Johns Hopkins on a resume, so that worked to my benefit.

    Cons

    Salary was really bad. They offered me 14.00/hr and I have a Masters degree. I took it because I was struggling for a job, but they will not budge to negotiate. They put on the job description some college required, but only seemed to hire individuals with degrees. That was their tactic to pay low. Also the hospital uses a hierarchical system. If you weren't a clinician, you were at the bottom of the totem pole.

    Advice to Management

    Treat others as you would like to be treated. Just because you are in an urban setting and attract employees from the community, does not mean everyone is incompetent. Offer more training opportunities to your employees who you feel are lacking in certain areas.

    I worked at The Johns Hopkins Hospital as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A good number of smart (and really nice) people who truly passionate about healthcare and tries to make a real change; worldwide recognized name, opportunity to get unique experience working with edge technologies

    Cons

    Employees reluctant to change due to high average age and high workload; definitely not dynamic, a lot of bureaucracy, lack of communication between departments.

    Advice to Management

    Hospital really needs more internal communication and balanced workload.

    Pros

    Health benefits and hard-working staff.

    Cons

    Under market compensation for staff, no raises; Management is guided by Directors and Executives on power trips who compete with one another, can't make a decision, and don't know how to manage people.

    Advice to Management

    Management Training should be mandatory for all Executives; Develop fair compensation levels; drop the boot camp mentality, stop treating staff like children; Give everyone opportunities not a select few.

    Pros

    Great company to grow in, but not a place where I would build a long career. JHH is an excellent organization that provides great entry level advancement and allows employees to seamlessly move from one department to another (sometimes for the good). Excellent education reimbursement opportunities (some of the best I have ever seen).

    Cons

    A very large organization that a person can get lost in if not prepared to network. You will get from it what you put in, but make sure to have an exit strategy if your go not want to build a long career at this entity.

    Pros

    they are a great name to add to your resume and make you look super awesome at job interviews. Its a beautiful work environment and affluent patients are rampant.

    Cons

    They are biased against foreign nurses despite the fact that they seek them out and pay high costs to hire them and maintain legal status in the US

    Advice to Management

    Please if you'll go through the pains to pay for a foreign nurse to get a green card at least try to invest more in their training and well being in placement specialty and less on having them stripped of their hard-earned license.
