    Pros

    Benefits are great. Great jumping off point if you plan to move to another area - the reputation gets noticed. Positive working environment and working around other gifted people.

    Cons

    Revolving door for employees. Difficult to manage the Baltimore City group at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more to all levels. Front line is the hardest hit. Give managers more flexibility, HR is always favoring the employee even when they are terrible.

    Helping patients is a very fulfilling job but to not have the support of your employer, not so much.

    I have been working at The Johns Hopkins Hospital part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    This position serves at a great entry level career. Espeically someone that wants to work in health care but not quite sure they know what they want to do. This job will lead the way for you. It's also easy to advance with in this company as well.

    Cons

    It can be a little overwhelming at times.

    Pros

    Great place to to work, lots of room for advancement. I've received 4 promotions within 2 years. My work always seems to be appreciated and the feedback is also valuable, good and bad

    Cons

    I have no cons, in most cases life is what you make it and this transcends to work life. Make the best of it is my motto

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up what you are doing. This is my personal experience and a very positive one

    I have been working at The Johns Hopkins Hospital full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are decent. Working with some of the best Drs out there. Incredible research happening.

    Cons

    Very little in the way of personal feedback. Everyone - no matter what, good employees or bad employees, are treated the exact same way when it comes to compensation. Compensation is low- they feel their name on your resume is partial compensation. Very little work and life balance- at Hopkins your life is work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hopkins is a teaching hospital and tends to treat all their employees as though they are there to learn and move on. This doesn't make sense for your employees who are not doctors and therefore you find a lot of new (fresh out of school) employees who will leave as soon as they get experience because Hopkins never meaningfully ups your salary. The other smaller group are very long term employees just waiting for their pensions and not particularly motivated to contribute. You would do well to try and keep your 5-10 year employees by adjusting compensation. (I made a $1 more an hour after 5 years of top notch reviews- I am leaving for another hospital that is willing to pay me $7 more an hour... so essentially you are just training for other hospitals- cheaper for them more expensive for you.)

    Pros

    Great benefits, good professional development perks and they help you pay for school, as long as you work in return.

    Cons

    Pay, even with a masters degree.
    If you are a minority - expect to feel marginalized

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train staff in cultural competence. Diversify leadership roles.
