    I worked at Johns Hopkins Medicine full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    A great place to work if you don't want job growth beyond the position you get when you enter the company. I don't say that lightly. Some people are on cruise mode and you can find less battles to get promoted because they generally hire from outside vs promoting. Casual dress. Staff below management are highly skilled in their domains so are excellent to learn from. Internal customer base makes work less intense, if that's something you like. Free parking.

    Cons

    Turnover has been VERY high there for years and so many who left received MUCH higher pay and promotions within a year or 2 of leaving from stronger more notable organizations. This is an indicator of what staff already knew, they were capable, contributing but overlooked employees. But opportunities to show growth there can be based on a 'look' and the development of friendships with some of management, vs an employee's skills and experience. Too much outdated technology- cheapest isn't always best. The job descriptions and interviews make the job seem more challenging than they really are. In some cases, the exciting things to do are given to consultants, then you get to fix their mistakes at half of the pay. The benefits for school are so regimented and taxed that they aren't worth the drama. For an insurance company the cost of coverage is high and restriction of what doctors you can see is high.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the cons. LOL. I gave up on them long ago. I just wish my old collegues the best. They are the best with no visibility
