    I worked at Johns Hopkins Medicine full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It was a great place to work. Supportive staff. And my boss was willing to help when I needed it. I learned a lot.

    Cons

    Pay was low, but it was an internship so that is understandable. But overall I enjoyed the experience very much!

    Advice to Management

    I think the culture could be improved a little by trying to foster a group of interns that push each other to work harder. Maybe have an internship coordinator that oversees all of the interns.

    I have been working at Johns Hopkins Medicine full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The name of course.
    Good location for the most part

    Cons

    Could probably make more else where
    Maybe more about who you know than whether or not your qualified
    Know your worth, ask for what you think you deserve

    Advice to Management

    I understand how the business model works: save as much money as possible while maintaining efficiency and productivity. At the end of the day though, employee satisfaction should also matter. I am aware of the name Johns Hopkins carrying so much weight in the real world, but pay your employees what they are worth. Don't short change them.

    I worked at Johns Hopkins Medicine as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Worked as an intern for one summer. I had the pleasure working down in Keswick, in the Hampden area, so the location was great. The people were phenomenal and I still keep in touch.

    Cons

    Employees benefits might be excessive...But that's not really a con.

    Pros

    If you know how to make it a stepping tool, there are opportunities everywhere

    Cons

    No matter whatever position you are in you would always get paid the minimum, that is something Johns Hopkins seriously need to think about. If you cannot retain talent, you are losing.

    Advice to Management

    Just as with customers, hiring new employees is more expensive in the long run.
