    Pros

    Great benefits and good people. Diverse workforce. Pushing hard to improve the IT healthcare landscape. Competitive salaries in IT.

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

    Pros

    The name of Hopkins. The hospital has amazing doctors & nurses.

    Cons

    Location! Driving and working on Baltimore City is horrible and unsafe. The pay is very low. I was there 22 years & didn’t get a raise for the last 4 years hat I worked there. Management is only for themselves. You are not represented by your manager. They just don’t want to get involved, but they do want you to work extra long hours without extra compensation. Parking fees are horrendous when executive leadership pay NO parking fees. Do as I say not as I do attitude. They will use you for everything they can get out of you, then toss you aside for someone making less money who won’t complain about the long hours & hard work without competition or recognition.

    Advice to Management

    Management should also pay for parking fees, lowering staff’s portion of those fees. Don’t just hire friends & family - hire who is best for the job. It’s not always “who you know” that gets the job done.

    Dedicated staff and great engagement initiatives. Camaraderie among co-workers is the best part of the job.

    Cons

    Advice to Management

    Find low-cost ways to better compensate employees who go above and beyond (other than verbal praise).
