    I worked at The Johns Hopkins Hospital full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Good experience, worked with some of the smartest people I've ever met

    Cons

    TERRIBLE management, terrible pay, terrible career ladder... There seems to be the attitude that working for "THE Johns Hopkins Hospital" makes up for poor compensation and poor benefits despite working long hours

    Former Employee - Nurse Practitioner in Baltimore, MD

    I worked at The Johns Hopkins Hospital full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Great facilities, a lot of docs here are big names in their respective fields. You'll probably learn a lot.

    Cons

    Pay for nurses and NP's is at least 20% below market rate. The benefits used to be good, but they cut them more and more every year. For example, NP's used to get a yearly amount of $ for professional development and continuing education, but some departments took that away altogether. NP's have to earn CE credits in order to be able to renew their certifications and licenses, but many JHH NP's now have to do so on...

    Advice to Management

    Management knows that people are willing to work for so little in order to get the Hopkins name on their resume. They've been hearing the same complaints about pay for ages but respond by doing "market adjustments" every six years or so; by the time they make an adjustment, they've already fallen well behind the market again. The hospital loses a lot of really great clinicians ever year, but as long as they see them...

    Current Employee - NC 2E RN BSN in Baltimore, MD

    I have been working at The Johns Hopkins Hospital full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Great teamwork among RNs on my unit, feel as though we've grown into our work family. We still have issues but we work it out. Love my unit!

    Cons

    The pay. It's a trade off for working under the esteemed Johns Hopkins umbrella. But that doesn't pay bills. RNs do not get enough hourly pay, it should be higher.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at the pay system. Revamp it. And then take the money you were going to give us in a raise and increase it 100% . That's how hard we work and we deserve more money.

    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at The Johns Hopkins Hospital full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    -top research/teaching hospital means you will learn a lot, see a lot, and have access to a lot -generally good relationships between providers and nurses -Magnet designated -actively working to be more nurse-friendly, have more competitive pay, etc. -the name can open doors for you

    Cons

    -mediocre benefits package for nurses -disconnect between management and front-line staff -currently having some internal turmoil (unionization attempt, falling rankings, physician turnover) -poor opportunities to make more money as a nurse -across the board, hospital does not always treat staff well (probably because their name can continue to attract quality people)
