"It's great. Really cool crowd, lots of talented people."
"Johns Hopkins has played a few too many stunts on my classmates and I, to rate as better than three stars. However, it is still a major name and something that I am proud to be a part of."
"I would like to say that the company and people here are very friendly and helpful. I think that it is a great place to work."
"I have worked for the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Lab for eight years, and for the Johns Hopkins University for over 20 years. Both organizations have a very important mission - to help educate our youth and protect our armed forces. Their staff are dedicated to these missions."
"JHU is a great university that offers various excellent courses with projects that help in improving overall your skill sets in the field of statistics and programming."
"I was the teaching assistant for electrical engineering course in 2014 summer on LMU site in Los Angeles. This was my first working experience. I learned a lot and had a very good working experience with a group of very professional and dedicated teams."
"I participated in a summer internship for bioinformatics."
"Good position for next step. Salary is not excellent but benefits are relatively good."
"JHU is a good place to study at."
"I will preface this with that my employment at JHU APL seems to be abnormal. I was hired under the pretense that I would be doing some less than desirable work for a few months (max of 4) and then be moved onto another project. A year went by and I was still doing the undesirable work, so I left."
"The work is great, but the entrenched management is sclerotic and unresponsive. Focus has gone away from PI initiated research to project manager directed work based on sponsor relationships. So the place is starting to resemble a Lockheed or a Boeing."
"JHUAPL has too many layers of bureaucracy for a research focused organization. To little of the budget is spent on new research projects for a university affiliated laboratory. The lab is becoming just another beltway bandit."
"This was my grad school experience. Working in a lab for generating data and learning all the necessary questions to solve problems. If you are inquisitive and like challenges, this is the right job to do."
"I currently love the company that I currently work for, but I want to move close to family. The working relation with the Medical Staff and IT department was a rewarding experience. I loved the challenge of solving problems and working with the team on many IT rollout projects."
"I've worked at APL for 3+ years. Great place to work overall, especially if you have a family and are seeking a long-term employer. However, the process by which one might move up wasn't ever clear to me, and there are a multitude of companies out there that will likely pay you more than APL for your skillset. Great emphasis on education though, and perfect for someone coming out of school with a BS (APL will pay for your entire MS through the JHU part-time program)."
