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

Pros

Small teams make this place feel smaller than it is. Being government affiliated, you know what to expect in terms of pay and so on. The projects I got to work on were interesting and useful. The people there are smart and stimulating.

Cons

Once again, it is government affiliated, so you get the cons of that as well. They do have stringent hiring requirements as well, and the culture is a little stuffier, with an older, more conservative workforce.

Advice to Management

I didn't see much of the overall structure or other teams when I worked here, so I have none.

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

    Pros

    If you have kids in college, the tuition benefit is outstanding.
    Vacation is good.
    Healthcare is good.
    Tuition remission is good, and they are usually flexible to allow you to take classes.

    Cons

    The salaries are low in exchange for the "prestige" of working at Hopkins.
    Firing people is nearly impossible so some of your colleagues won't do any work but still get the same benefits as you.
