    I worked at Mayo Clinic

    Pros

    It is only worthwhile to work at Mayo if you are in the health related areas, i.e. Physicians, Nursing Staff and other Clinicians/Researchers, the other big positive if it weren't such a horrid place, is they have low to zero cost motorcoach transportation throughout the area towns (up to 50 miles away), that is their best attribute. The health care is low cost, but rapidly rising, it is very good coverage but you can never expect a 2nd opinion, they all sing from the same sheet. There are good people working there of course, but to quote the movie "Office Space", "You have a place where people work just hard enough to avoid trouble, or being fired."

    Cons

    Archaic communications and organization, Very Very cliquish, it is all about playing "the game" at Mayo. They are a not-for-profit organization, but having seen all of their mailings, they are very dollar hungry. If you are not bubbly and in the "In Crowd" you will be seriously disappointed. If you truly care about your craft and improving the process, again you will be very disappointed. There are nice people working there that truly care about what they do, but if you get a "people ladder" climber above you, prepare to be stepped on as they ascend, unless you are a willing accomplice. The most phony corporate culture I've ever witnessed. It is truly regrettable that a foundation that has done so much to aid in people's health has become a corporate quagmire. I would say if you can get a decent paying job with little contact with other associates/managers, it's worth a go for the benefits and the only decent wage in Rochester, MN

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at yourselves and ask how the Father or the Mayo Brothers would view the way the Clinic is run now, and what it's priorities are. Look deeply into your departments. Your Doctors treat your Nurses like Dirt, most of your middle management are agenda filled parasites who value their own interests above what is best for the company, and indeed would sink the company if it suited their goals. Do something to insure that it is actually possible to get a 2nd medical opinion within the clinic. Most of all, quit believing your own hype. The sun does not shine from your behinds, learn some humility with clients and employees, learn about both groups, question them personally about what is right and wrong with the Clinic with no fear of retribution. On the employee side, give some teeth to the employee advocacy relations area (I don't recall its company name anymore) Lastly make sure you make your motto and policy of "Mutual Respect" is more than lip-service.

    Pros

    World renown medical center with top patient care.

    Cons

    Treat patients better than its employee. Research is always the second after everything else. Benefit getting worse. Politics plays everywhere.
