    Current Employee - Research Associate in Baltimore, MD (US)

    I have been working at Johns Hopkins University full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good infra-structure and office management support. There are bright people, but little support for young scientists. You are on your own, and need to go somewhere else if you want a permanent position.

    Cons

    No job security since many research positions are based on research grants. This could be different in medical school campus where some money comes from clinical revenue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Environment is catered toward tenured professors. Teaching by some dispassionate professors is often dismal with less than 25% class attendance. If you have a research position, there is no job security and you need to provide 100% of your salary plus overhead cost from your grants.
