    Pros

    * Good visibility
    * Brand name university

    Cons

    * Medical school is located in a bad area, high crime, many shootings.
    * High security
    * Better training for bosses needed on people skills
    * High stress environment, bosses can be very stressed

    Advice to Management

    Pay research personnel (staff) better and provide better job security ( in a bad grant climate ). Stressed staff leads to bad mentorship, leadership which results in long term problems.

    I have been working at Johns Hopkins University part-time

    Pros

    Honestly, I love working as a research assistant here. The faculty is caring and supportive and the projects are relevant and cutting edge. If you're even remotely interested in health, this school has something that will make you happy.

    Cons

    Different departments have different methods of submitting timesheets and the payroll department treats them all the same. Not a huge hassle if you don't need cash immediately. You WILL get paid, it's just about during which cycle and after how many different timesheet submissions.

    Advice to Management

    Upper level managers at the payroll department seem to have different preferences for submitting hours than the folks actually handling the submissions. Getting on the same page and sending the same message to employees would be helpful.
