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

    Pros

    You get to work with some of the most accomplished scientists and doctors in the world.

    Cons

    Like any PhD program, it's really hit or miss depending on whom you have as your advisor. PhD student salary is pretty low - it's a struggle to find a good place to live in Baltimore city with this salary.

    I have been working at Johns Hopkins University full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Tuition benefit for dependents and self; wide variety of positions and locations; interesting co-workers and leaders.

    Cons

    Changes to the tax plan will cause a lot of problems -- but even before that, lower pay than at other universities; position depends on personality of your boss; wide variety in job descriptions/pay from office to office, i.e., SOM and Press jobs tend to pay less.

    Advice to Management

    Nurture growth in staff, followed by higher paying positions.
