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

    Pros

    Friendly, professional atmosphere in all of the departments and divisions I've worked in and/or with.

    Surrounded by people that genuinely care about their part in patient care.

    Benefits package is great.

    Cons

    Low salary. Compensation is not merit based, but rather follows a system where parity must be kept among those with a similar title. So if a position requires more effort, or has more duties, than a position of the the similar/same title expect the compensation to be close or the same. Work harder/more, make the same as someone who doesn't.

    Posted salary ranges are not accurate, they're a carrot on a stick. All salary ranges posted are for any position within that "band" and not specific to the position itself. So someone will end up applying for a position and wondering why they are at the lower end of the salary range. It's because the actual salary range for that position only occupies a fraction of the band you are shown.

    Lack of transparency from management; those most involved in a particular aspect of the patient care chain are often the last to know about critical changes to the workflow.

    Advice to Management

    Include staff/faculty who are actively involved in a certain task in the earlier meetings about proposed changes. Often, the people doing the work will be the last to find things out and end up having to scramble to make sure they have basics in place to do their job and maintain the standard of patient care.

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

    Pros

    Could help you to get a better job somewhere else; namely Johns Hopkins University or Hospital. Very diverse group of people working there. Some are very nice & genuine.

    Cons

    Salaries are low. Employees are not valued nor is there concern for their safety/well-being. It’s very heavy at the top with managers and directors. Too many chiefs. Leadership changed & was hoping that things would change but they seem like they are going to remain the same. Would be better to work at the University & Hospital. They have better benefits and are more concerned about the welfare of their employees. No longer has the reputation they did but could improve if new managers were brought in. People that have been there long are not willing to change nor interested in their employees. Very obvious that some managers have favorites & treat the rest of the team as such.

    Advice to Management

    None - they don't listen.
