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

    Pros

    -The scheduling is very flexible and allows for you too work full time or part-time with the ability to still go to school.
    -This hospital provides many tools too help better educate you in your field.

    Cons

    -We always seem to be short staffed.
    -There is very little work-life balance
    -Very low non competitive pay rate
    -it seems that non licensed positions in the hospital are under represented when it comes to being heard about problems among the unit and hospital

    Provide a platform for unlicensed personnel to feel comfortable coming to co workers and management about issues that arise in the day too say workings of their units and of the hospital.

    I have been working at Johns Hopkins Medicine full-time

    Pros

    Co-workers are great. Innovation is encouraged. Benefits are good. Never a dull moment. Proud of the institution and what it stands for. Love my job. Always look forward to going to work.

    Cons

    Complex organization that takes a long time to understand. Pay scale is relatively low. HR dept is generally ineffective and not the worker’s friend, but always looking out for management. The employee assistance program needs attention. Women must be 3x more effective than men to be promoted.

    Advice to Management

    The perception is that Top management continues to receive bonuses and raises when rank and file receive minimal increases. The new HR online performance appraisal system is impersonal and complicated and replaces human contact. Whose idea was that?
