    I worked at The Johns Hopkins Hospital full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Johns Hopkins is full of very dedicated staff. There is also a lot going on there and opportunities to work on many different types of projects if you have the time and a supportive manager.

    Cons

    Often I felt that we were short staffed. Because of this, some of our work lacked the kind of detailed care that it deserved.

    Pros

    High acuity patients, variety from diagnosis to end-of-life. It is inspiring to work at one of the best hospitals in the world

    Cons

    Baltimore can be a tough city to live in. It is worth the experience being able to work with a great staff and rovide care to a diverse patient population.

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

    Pros

    Work environment, employee engagement focus, work life balance, Technologies

    Cons

    Compensation, pay raises ( usually 1% annually regardless of your annual review), HR department that is out of touch, behind the times, and mostly a hindrance, not a helpful partner. Better policy and procedures in IT would be ideal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Flexibility and the ability to adapt to modern times is key to any organization, regardless of whatever it is that organization does and must always be a focus for senior leadership to ensure these are in place as best as possible.

    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.

    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.
