This university is very good. It has outstanding undergraduate students and very competent professors. The working efficient is, however, not very high most of the time, especially when it comes to infrastructure or experiment-related services.
Faculty, Research Associate, Lab Manager (Former Employee), Baltimore, MD – June 12, 2014
JHU was a wonderful environment at which to work. I transitioned from a doctoral student in the Bloomburg School of Public Health, to a Post-Doctoral Fellow in the School of Medicine, followed by a Research Associate position in the Department of Biophysics. The environment was very supportive.
Administrative Coordinator (Current Employee), Division of Quality and Safety (Pediatrics) – June 10, 2014
Pros: fairly close to home
Cons: parking issues
I have a very busy workload comprizing of scheduling and attending meetings along with regular office management. I have learned that even though I depend on others to reply to me in order to complete my end, that I need to be agreesive and my first priority is to complete my tasks. I don't directly have co-workers but I interact with many people within – more... my organization and also with a variety of organizations throughout the United States. The hardest part of my job is waiting for others to reply to me. The most enjoyable part of my job is that I work independently using my own judgement to decide how a task is to be completed. – less
A typical day is spent mostly with the students on a hospital unit. I learned more about myself, teaching skills, time management skills, evaluation techniques as well as superviory skills. ALthough there is very little contact with co workers everyone has been very nice approachable and very willing to assist. The first day of class is the most anxiety – more... provoking day because of having to meet a group of new adults. – less
Review and respond to e-mail. Attend to items on to do list. You must have patience with peoples of other cultures in the work environment. Co-workers have many personalities. They make the office more interesting. Juggling all the work duties. The natural lighting in the work environment and the people I work with.
Histology Tech (Weinberg) (Former Employee), Baltimore – May 16, 2014
Pros: direct subway line access.
Cons: too many to name.
This was the absolute worst place I've ever worked in my entire life. They work you to into the ground because of being so understaffed but they do little to nothing to recruit new employees. People run out of here the first chance they get and spread the work around the profession to stay away from Johns Hopkins. I agree totally. The managements decisions – more... are based on ego's, power trips, and denial anything is wrong. They look down on us as peons who don't deserve respect. They are the busiest lab in the state but the lowest paying. Stay away from there. Go where you'll be respected. – less
Accounting Assistant (Current Employee), Baltimore, MD – May 14, 2014
Pros: light workload, hour lunch break, good benefits
Cons: poor management, favoritism, under compensated
I've been working for this company for over 7 years in a part time full time capacity. I have expressed to management my goals and where I would like to take my career. I have not been offered any advancement opportunities although they have indicated to me that my work performances are above average. Management has favorites and don't seem concerned – more... about employee growth. – less
