    I worked at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    good pay, seems relatively easy to move up if you are interested in working in the medical field.

    Cons

    many employees and staff were rude, disrespectful, inappropriate and unwelcoming.

    Advice to Management

    Organize and delegate tasks better, give employees the necessary resources needed to make their job easier, actually listen to concerns and ideas, enforce better behavior conduct, find a way for hosts and hostesses to easily input orders from patients and guests and also have a way for patients to easily place their own orders! Also find a better way for dirty trays to be taken from rooms to dirty carts, Do not expect workers to collect so many dirty trays while still making sure the other trays are being delivered on time.

    I worked at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    A great name and reputation.

    Cons

    High turnover, low pay, and stressful environment. Administration will not be helpful for advancement. Many employees come for the reputation and their resume, stay until they can't stand it any longer, then leave.

    Advice to Management

    Could do much much more to retain employees and improve work environment.

    Pros

    Hopkins is a teaching hospital so you will learn a lot. Very patient centered organization, staff really cares about the patients. Decent resources.

    Cons

    Upper management rarely requests feedback from employees and when they do, it seems they never put our thoughts into action. Once upon a time benefits (health insurance, pensions) used to be good but they no longer are. Pay is inadequate and significantly less than the main hospital. Senior nurses eat the young. Not much thought from management about how to retain employees which creates a lot of turn over. Often times the most experienced nurse on the floor only has a few ears of experience. Rotating day/night shift is brutal and takes years to get a decent schedule.

    Advice to Management

    LISTEN TO YOUR EMPLOYEES !!

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

    Pros

    Opportunities for learning
    Patient centered care
    Evidence based care practices
    Yummy new cafeteria
    Always OT
    Work Bonus pay for high needs unit is $55/hr
    Doctors are receptive to nursing suggestions
    Good relationships between doctors and nurses

    Cons

    Pay for parking
    Rotating shifts are mandatory even if you are not coping well with them. They care more about filling those slots than having safe nurses to care for the patients.
    They will tell you that benefits like tuition reimbursement make up for the low pay, but if you’re not in college using that benefit, it’s useless. The health insurance used to be phenomenal but now deductibles and copays are ridiculous and the premium is higher. They give you $1 raises/year if you’re lucky but that all goes to health insurance and parking increases.
    Nursing unit managers are unprofessional and favoritism is blatant.
    They don’t care about retaining nurses or techs, but throw a lot of perks at physicians, which is crazy because nurses and techs are the heart of this place. As a nurse you spend your day running behind all disciplines, coordinating all aspects of care, and correcting physicians mistakes.
    Good nurses almost always leave for better paying jobs.
    Travel nurses come in making $20+ more an hour than staff nurses, work bonus is almost $30 more an hour than new grad base pay. They can definitely afford to pay nurses more.
    Time off is often denied which forces employees to call out and get penalized for it.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your nurses more, offer student loan repayment, allow for more vacation time. Keep nurses happy to retain staff and keep senior nurses. These nurses are excellent resources and keep the units running smoothly, and improves patient outcomes. When you pay your nurses more there will be less need for travel nurses.

    Pros

    Community-Based Hospital; Many venues to express concerns and offer suggestions

    Cons

    Suggestions are rarely taken seriously, all change moves at a snail's pace, very matrixed environment, provider-based culture fails to recognize errors made by providers, acute care focused-not up to par with changing healthcare environment of preventive focus.

    Advice to Management

    Re-focus time/effort/resources on building and developing ambulatory care as this is where healthcare is heading. Take suggestions for change seriously and reduce the amount of work required to make even small changes. Enhance culture by re-focusing on team based care and holding providers accountable for actions.
