Pros

Johns Hopkins University is full of great people in a supportive atmosphere. A lot is expected of you, but they have every right to demand the best support for their students.

Cons

I can't really think of any cons that would apply to the entire university. I worked part-time at the Recreation Center as a Monitor, which was rather boring and repetitive, but you can't really expect more from a job the main requirement of which is to watch students and university affiliates and make sure they don't hurt themselves or the facility.

Advice to Management

You could consider rotating employees through the different relatively unskilled positions to give them a bit of fresh air.

    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.
