    Name recognition in working for Hopkins, fast paced work environment, great benefits.

    working swing shifts, holidays, and weekends. Poor raises, hiring freezes. Make you join a union which protects a lot of workers that should have been let go a long time ago.

    I have been working at The Johns Hopkins Hospital full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits - tuition reimbursement/advancement, free continuing education, EHP healthcare insurance is affordable, access to the best clinicians. Met lots of motivated employees trying their best to uphold the mission/vision and core values of JHH on their daily routine. Clinicians really care about their patients. I was a patient too that's why I know :)

    Cons

    Lower pay than national average. Hard to advance to a leadership position-very competitive.

    Pros

    The only pro about this job is the hourly wage.

    Cons

    They do not value their employees. There is a lot of favoritism. They act like you should just accept being mistreated because you get to say that you work at Johns Hopkins.

    Advice to Management

    Change your ways

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

    Pros

    High caliber people
    Education driven
    Diverse experiences
    Resource rich
    Large organization to move around in (if you know the right people)

    Cons

    Low and disproportionate pay
    Little to no raises even for outstanding employees
    High parking costs
    Upper management is out of touch and refuses to change/retire
    Wide variance on quality of units with little accountability to set minimum standards
    Large organization; very difficult to grow and learn unless you know the right people or are lucky enough to have a supervisor that helps you advance and navigate the system
    Many people are stuck in their ways and still think the Hopkins name is a good enough reason to leave things the way they are
    Creativity, innovation, and new ways of thinking are frowned upon
    Epitome of good old boys club

    Advice to Management

    Retire those leaders who are unwilling to change
    Look into departments with high turnover rates - there are reasons why good people are leaving in droves
    Buy the parking garages and offer free parking to all employees
    Value your people - they are your biggest asset
    Bring salaries in line with the experience, education, and level of work employees do; start by reducing the multi-million dollar salaries of the top few
    Demand fairness and equity in all departments; hold directors, managers, etc. accountable

    I have been working at The Johns Hopkins Hospital full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great coworkers, new facility, can schedule shifts so you get a week off without using PTO. ICU-level transport team means often not having to take patient down to procedures (CT scans or MRIs).

    Cons

    Bad management, rotating schedule, every other weekend requirement for at least a year depending on the unit, poor compensation, bad retention.

    Advice to Management

    Increase pay to meet quality of nurses and provide incentives so that experienced nurses stay. PAY nurses extra for precepting and charge.

    I have been working at The Johns Hopkins Hospital full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Busy environment with a wide variety of patient populations. Anything healthcare related you will never feel like it's the same old thing everyday. Great on a resume is you plan to move elsewhere later in your career. Education opportunities are some of the best with continuing educations classes both online and classroom held multiple times a year. Benefits are some of the best you will find

    Cons

    Parking can be a huge hassle and expensive in the long run if you work in the day time. ER can feel very crowded and hectic for someone new to the field. Some staff can be rude but that's with any job.

    Cons

    They don't want to admit to anything they did wrong
