Pros

Mayo Clinic has a great reputation so its a good resume builder. The pay is great in Arizona in comparison to Banner and other medical facilities.

Cons

It's more of a name than a reality. It is mostly MD managed, so decisions are generally in the favor of physicans, not support staff. They are making a lot of changes right now with the budget so it is not the Mayo Clinic that it once was.

Advice to Management

Cut the management. Instead of a person reporting to a Lead, a Manager AND a Supervisor, trim the fat and save some money by implementing more efficient processes.

    Pros

    Nice place to be at if you get sick or have a major medical issue at work.

    Cons

    No advancement. No growth unless personal growth. Low salaries. Crony kingdoms and emperor builders abound. Don't show initiative or ambition you'll be the first one shot.

    Advice to Management

    Make managers do continued education to keep position. Have HR deeply involved in hiring process to make it fair (including IT positions).

    Pros

    This company is the ultimate ethical company. Treats employees well but offering basically lifetime employment unless you do something stupid. That said, it also draws people who want the welfare experience. Pay is at best average and therefore you draw average talent. A rich history of quality medical practices and outcomes which has build the brand.

    Cons

    Even though the brand is strong for the right reasons, those from the business side of things will not find a challenge here. Decisions are made by committee on everything! The loudest voice often gets its way in those environment, or decisions don't get made and the solution is very watered down/ineffective. No one is willing to take a stand on anything and most everyone is risk adverse; doing time to collect a pension. There is almost no understanding about financials in decision making. Why? Because a long time ago, the Mayo Brothers made Doctors the ultimate leaders. This has its benefits when it comes to overall medical decisions and direction but when it comes to competing in other non-medical arenas that the Clinic participates in, these part-time leaders frankly are not qualified to lead.

    Advice to Management

    Lead only at the top levels and the let the business professionals run the business areas with more autonomy. Analyze the proper risk-reward scenario and seek more risk.
