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

Pros

Johns Hopkins has so many seasoned professors with knowledge to share. They offer not only a way to earn some money, but ways to get hands on experience in research and to learn. You become part of a team that builds you up and gives you skills. The department of Geography and Environmental Engineering is full of wonderful people (graduate students and professors alike) who will take time out of their schedules to teach you in the lab, but also to help you grow as a person.

Cons

Some of the work takes long hours at strange times of day. Research is a work until it is done sort of thing so sometimes that means working late or working on weekends. A lot is expected of you.

Advice to Management

The professors are wonderful, as managers, they give their time and expertise. In particular in DOGEE, they are very caring about their researchers on a personal basis, which makes all the difference. It is not just about completing tasks, although that is important, but about learning how to think critically and independently, about growing into the best version of yourself.

    I have been working at Johns Hopkins University full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Staff and students are very smart and work very hard to do outstanding work
    If you have college age children the benefits for tuition remission are excellent
    Great people come to work here because of the reputation of excellence, but salaries mean you are just starting in the field or need a spouse to subsidize your career choice

    Cons

    If you plan to have a child or have a child under 18, there are few benefits, no maternity or paternity leave and no daycare available.
    Salaries stagnated in 2005 and have raises have remained lower than rate of inflation since 2008
    Very hard to keep good staff because of low salaries
    In the past 3-4 years most upper administration has been removed or left for other institution which creates an environment of uncertainty for the future
    Have reduced benefits available to new employees.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on remaining competitive in attracting new employees and retaining seasoned employees. Need to keep in step with current trends in higher ed and other industries where employees go after Johns Hopkins
