Research Technician (Current Employee) – Baltimore, MD – October 11, 2016
I love my lab, my coworkers are great but the job is very stressful and the pay is pretty low. The day is pretty relaxed as far as timing goes but expect to stay late sometimes and come in early other times.
Low pay and resistance from HR when my supervisor tried to give me a raise.
Regional Research Associate, New Jersey liaison (Former Employee) – Baltimore, MD – October 7, 2016
I conducted lengthy interviews and evaluations of new mothers and their infants. I enjoyed the interaction with different people each day and learned a lot about people of different cultural backgrounds, as I got to know the clients. The hardest part was coordinating the clients' schedules to fit into my work schedule, but I always made it work, even if I had to work late or on weekends.
I am currently a postdoc fellow in the Department of Oncology at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. The school provides enriched environment for biomedical research and has great mentors and programs.

Student (Former Employee) – Baltimore, MD – September 2, 2016
The Johns Hopkins University was an academically and socially stimulating environment. I was adequately challenged in the classroom, the lab and out of the classroom. It was definitely worth the experience.

Program Coordinator, Multicultural Affairs (Current Employee) – Baltimore, MD – August 17, 2016
Student affairs is a tough place to work because you learn so much but you dedicate a lot of time. Work/ life balance is difficult but you have to set aside me time. Love the center I work in, very family friendly and safe space to discuss culture
I worked at Jhpiego for well over a year and everyday I felt like I made a difference. My typical day at work began with warm greetings and great conversations. I am the first impression ambassador and it is an privilege to assist my colleagues and visitors.
Lot of networking opportunities. Hopkins has a vast majority of people and you can meet so many people that do wonderful things. They are great if you want to go into science because you get very hands on experience.
Documentation Coordinator (Current Employee) – Fells Point, MD – June 30, 2016
A typical day at work consisted of running several reports in various computer systems. Determining whether a patient's charges could be released depending on the particular study that they were on. If further investigation into the patients charges were needed an electronic bill was printed and give to the coding specialists. I've learned many valuable things at this position such as new systems and how to determine study related information from different computer systems. Uploading research consent forms that were faxed through Right Fax to Epic into the patient's chart. Management in my particular office was not the best. Bad decision making, and upper management can't seem to work cohesively together. My coworkers are the best - teamwork I thing the hardest thing of my job is seeing when a patient is on a study and didn't survive. The best part about my job is when you are able to see that a patient is responding well to a particular study.
