Pros

Access to human specimen and diverse patient population. Lots of smart, driven clinician-researcher, making it THE best place to do translational research.

Cons

low career mobility for PhD scientists. Takes long time to get tenure.

Advice to Management

Foster strategic, high leverage research as oppose to low impact, low return projects. Fund the excellence, not mediocre. Please give younger scientists more chances to succeed, not the ones been here for 30+ years without active funding or research any more.

  1. Problems and Opportunities at Mayo Clinic

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Mayo Clinic

    Pros

    good benefits,internationally recognized,superior care in most areas.

    Cons

    Nurses have very little leeway with clinical decision making. Top-heavy.Nurses are expected to run unnecessary tests to get the institution to get more money or paranoia about lawsuits, or both..

    Advice to Management

    Give nurses more flexibility, within legal and safety boundaries, to try different modalities of care. Be more pragmatic than policy and paranoia driven.

    Pros

    The Belief at being the Best is instilled throughout the organization.

    Cons

    Decisions take too long to make. Opportunities are lost in the process.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more money on making sure processes are done correctly. Infrastructure / Systems are there to support future growth. Open up better communications and direction throughout the lower ranks.
