I have been working at Johns Hopkins University full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Benefits and perks are the same as for those at the rest of the university and that's pretty good.

Cons

Although not hostile, if you are not in a clique, you're never sure where you stand in the organization and are likely not to receive promotions. Pay is below average for technology professionals in this area - benefits help may balance the difference.

Advice to Management

When interviewing for positions, bring in people from outside of the division who are diverse in backgrounds, race and ethnicity, to serve on the search committee with the hiring manager. Make sure that candidate are rejected for the right reasons and make sure that the person(s) hired are best for the job and not just people you think will fit in. Pay more attention to people outside the cliques. They may just be your super stars

    A very good environment for research, if you enjoy to be in an university, this is a good choice. Besides, the weather in Baltimore is very pleasant.

    Well... you know what Baltimore is famous for... yeah the security is a major concern. Especially if you are in downtown campus, you should be careful.
