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

Pros

Working with some brilliant people can be motivating. You won't become rich working at Hopkins, but you can make a living. Lots of opportunity for training and advancement. Good work is recognized.

Cons

You may have to move laterally to move up. Talent is in the Academic and Research areas. Business leadership tends toward bureaucratic. You won't hear "thank you" from the top very often, but collegial relationships can be developed to accomplish what needs to be done.

Advice to Management

Walk around a little. Meet the staff and understand that they are more committed to mission and institutional mission than leadership. Look for competence and creativity, not for acquiescence. Management needs to earn respect in the same way staff is measured through competence and collaboration.
