    Bias environment, but overall manageable. Easy to get stuck in one department. Very strict attendance, union managed. Strict on policies, hard to use benefits.

    I worked at The Johns Hopkins Hospital full-time

    Pros

    Good to have on resume, experience, health benefits. If you use Hopkins doctors your healthcare is very cheap. Newly renovated hospital.

    Cons

    Poor salary, no 403B match, no real room for advancement. Despite being a teaching hospital no one seems be interested in teaching. Management is unprofessional and treats staff poorly. Management publicly humiliates and belittles staff in front of coworkers, physicians, and worst of all patients. The only exception to this is the small group of "favorites" that are allowed to do or say whatever they wish.

    I have been working at The Johns Hopkins Hospital full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great Benefits, Pay for you to go back to school

    Cons

    bad compensation, extremely hard to advance

    Advice to Management

    Don't ignore people that apply for jobs just because you do not think they have the experience. Give people a chance and give them an interview. You will realize your missing out on a lot of great candidates.

    I worked at The Johns Hopkins Hospital full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Teaching hospital with great opportunities for learning. Good new graduate training program. Follows evidenced-based practice and extensive protocols for all procedures.

    Cons

    Salaries are on lower end in the field. Almost always must rotate days and nights when starting as new nurse and it is hard to advance to day schedule.

    Advice to Management

    Staffing seems to be an issue as there is a lot of turnover and people moving on after they get their couple years of experience at Hopkins. Seems like there were always gaps in staffing and travel nurses needed.
