    I worked at Johns Hopkins University full-time

    Pros

    They have access to any software program that you could possibly imagine. Also, the access to academic research is unparalleled. Working at JHU is a very good resume line to gain employ elsewhere.

    Cons

    It is considered to be a privilege to work at JHU so they don't pay nearly what their employees deserve for the work requested.

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice if management would stop micromanaging their employees and let them be autonomous. If you believe that your employees are not capable of the work, then why did you hire them?


  9. "Review of JHU"

    Because it is JHU - the connections, the facilities...

    Cons

    Academics can be troublesome, consider who you want to work with, and for what aim.
