    Pros

    You can dictate what you do in your work day. Hopkins allows you to further your career if you actively seek the programs that are available.

    Cons

    Management doesn't always help seek growth for their employees. Not much accountability throughout the organization. Easy to hide and not do any work which makes the overall output of day-to-day employees unproductive.

    Advice to Management

    Hold employees to a standard and enforce rules universally to all employees that are hourly or salary. Just because you are a salaried employee does not mean you should be exempt from a minimum standard.

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

    Pros

    Lots of diversity in job responsibilities. Challenging opportunities to learn and implement procedures. Great teamwork with fellow staff. Not micro-managed by management.

    Cons

    Heavy work load and understaffed. Opportunity for advancement very slim. Underpaid and minimal raises given.

    Advice to Management

    Hire enough staff to accommodate the work load. Staff morale is extremely low.

    Pros

    Tuition reimbursement, fair benefits for the young and healthy

    Cons

    No room to move up, pay is low, almost everyone is overqualified for their job, if you are Black you will encounter racism at Hopkins (every Black person here can tell you stories, it goes back for decades).

    Pros

    Johns Hopkins name looks great on your resume, and it is really a great place to learn. Good chance for advancement within the unit.

    Cons

    Pay and benefits are not competitive for the area. The culture on my unit is poor, but I cannot speak for other units. We are frequently under staffed. One manager did not seem to care about the unit, or the accountability of the staff. The other expects changes too fast, and was hard on staff. Salaried pay, not hourly. Scheduling makes it very difficult to have any work life balance. The hospital seems to promote healthy lifestyle, work life balance, etc for employees, but makes it difficult to obtain these things. Will host events or other benefits, but make it so we cannot actually go to them.

    Advice to Management

    Make parking less expensive for staff. Change the call out / occupational health / disciplinary policy so staff do not have to come to work sick.

    I worked at The Johns Hopkins Hospital full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits, free parking for night shift.

    Cons

    40 hours is considered full time, not 36 hours like it normally is for ICU positions. Don't pay as well as surrounding hospitals. No breaks. Raises are very little after the first year or two.
